Forest Schools

Mrs Davies is our qualified Forest Schools’ Practitioner. She is working with each class to enable all children and staff to have access to the Forest Schools’ Curriculum.

Reception & KS1 2014-15

KS2  Y3/4  and Y5/6   2015-16

This has many benefits:

  • Independence in learning
  • Personal awareness of health & safety
  • Being outdoors- in all weathers
  • Appreciation of the environment
  • Confidence building
  • Team skills
  • Learning to manipulate materials and tools safely

These are just a few of the advantages the Forest Schools’ Ethos brings.

We have always used the outdoor environment – this brings an extra dimension!
