Forest School

In 2018, we invested in making an area specifically for Forest School and outdoor education. We spent time and money resourcing it to make it a fantastic learning space for our children. In 2019, FRIENDS generously donated another sum of money to further resource the area, making it an even better learning environment. 


Each half term, a different year group gets to spend Friday Afternoon's in our designated Forest School area learning a wide range out outdoor, practical skills through different activities. 


During Forest School sessions children will:

  • Build shelters
  • Explore fire safety through making one
  • Complete sensory trails
  • Tie knots 
  • Create natural art 
  • Explore the wildlife 
  • Create bird feeders

And much, much more!


Please see photos below of some of the fantastic adventures our children get up to on their Friday afternoons.
