Forest School

Year 5/6 Forest Schools

Year 5 and 6 have thoroughly enjoyed their Forest School experiences this term. We have made frames with our knot-tying techniques, built our own dens (and tested them in wet conditions) and have now started work on a new project…

Wiggly Worms!

Forest school today provided a rich learning experience for one boy.  A worm was discovered, carefully picked up and cared for, for most of our morning outside.

A slug was found too! Endless open ended play outdoors!! Perfect!!

Forest School Fun

This week, some children made human scales to see who was heaviest

others focused their attention on creating a scarecrow to keep the birds away from our mud mountains.

Children in Early Years love taking their learning into the forest.  This week, some children made human scales to see who was heaviest, whilst others focused their attention on creating a scarecrow to keep the birds away from our mud mountains.

Forest school news!

Our forest school is really taking shape! The hugely popular hills have doubled in size and have been turfed and we have a brand new storage shed to house our resources.  Many thanks to our amazing team of dedicated and passionate parents who have given up so much time to help move the project forward – thankyou all!

Our children are thriving in our forest!

Planting hedges and trees in the Forest School

Our forest school is going from strength to strength…. tree by tree! Our dedicated group of staff, parents and children have not only planted a hedge but trees too!

Early years and key stage 1 are already using our amazing new resource.  If you would like to be involved please chat to Caroline Burt in early years or leave your name at the office.

Early Years – Friends for the Fairy King

The children have been really enjoying themselves in the new Forest school area of the back school field, exploring nature and being imaginative. The Fairy King, who lives on our school field, asked for some friends to play with. The children used their creativity and skills to make stick men, who live in the houses we made a previous week. The children all look forward to this outdoor experience once a week and in all weathers!
