We recognise the importance of outdoor learning as a tool to develop resilience, perseverance and mental toughness for our children alongside a love for the natural environment around them.
Pupils in Reception take part in Forest School every week within our 30-acre estate. Our children have the freedom to explore, play, build, create, imagine, and use their senses to experience the outdoor environment and engage with one another in sessions led by our specialist Forest School leader.
Children sing around the fire, learn to use and make tools, build dens, dig in the mud, identify bugs and build their own bug hotel. This is where they learn the skills that they can then use in the reception garden and woodland area during other lessons and playtimes.
