Forest Schools

We are a Forest School which means we have been accredited for our work in the outdoors and with nature.  We have beautiful grounds which we use to enhance learning with the children.  We have a large garden where we grow crops and plants to attract bees where the children can learn about growing things and about the minibeasts and bees which live there.  We have a copse area where we can build shelters and explore natural crafts and other activities.  We have a fire pit and learn how to make and use fire safely.  We have a pond and wildlife area and bug hotels to attract minibeasts.  We also have a willow dome, large field and lots of trees.  Our nature trail (which doubles as a running track) goes around the perimeter of our grounds with signs and tasks designed to develop the children’s awareness of nature all around them. The children enjoy lots of learning outdoors with the infants having a weekly forest schools activity linked with our whole school theme.
