One afternoon a week all class 1 attend ‘Forest School’ in the neighbouring National Trust woods where we have a dedicated roped off area of woodland. With a member of staff trained to lead ‘forest schools’, children get up to all sorts of activities from building dens to researching mini beasts. ‘Forest school’ follows an exciting curriculum designed for exploring the great outdoors. In addition, the whole school has links with National Trust rangers, who teach them interesting skills such as dry stone walling and bush craft.
