Forest School

Tucked away in a corner of our 100-acre grounds, our Forest School provides wonderful opportunities for practical outdoor learning.

-

A secure woodland environment, it helps children learn, explore and start building a lasting relationship with nature. Forest School is used by all classes in the Pre-Prep, regardless of the weather - and is a firm favourite with all years.

Activities complement and extend the academic curriculum, helping further develop independence and enriching language, mathematical and communications skills.

Children will have an opportunity to learn practical skills at Forest School, such as building fires, handling tools and constructing shelters. They also develop team-building skills, learn to calculate risks (and to take them!), building their self-confidence.

Reception uses the Forest School each week, regardless of the weather, while both Year 1 and Year 2 use the facilities four times each term.
