Forest School Lead Teacher: Mrs Alder
What Are Forest Schools?
“A Forest School is an innovative educational approach to outdoor play and learning.”
We have successfully completed our first term of Forest Schools with Owls class. Thank you to all the parents and grandparents who have regularly helped out at Forest Thursdays in Owls Class.
Our school activities take place in and around the school grounds with the view to developing the school’s own woodland area in the future. Forest school embraces being outdoors whatever the weather enabling children to learn in a natural environment all year round. School provides full length waterproofs for each child.
Lots of exciting activities include:
- using tools
- making dens
- following and making trails
- environmental art
- mud sculptures
- cooking our own food over an open fire.
From the Autumn Term 2018 in Year One, Forest Schools will continue with Owls class on a Thursday Afternoon and Squirrels class on a Friday afternoon.
If any parents/grandparents/carers would like to help at Forest Thursdays or Fridays, please see Mrs Alder.
