Forest School


We are very fortunate to have wonderful grounds with a huge wild meadow and woodlands.


All classes enjoy at least one Forest School session each week whatever the weather.


Forest School is a specific approach to learning outside the classroom. It supports the delivery of the curriculum in a creative and inspiring way and allows children to initiate their own play in a natural environment. It plays a significant role in developing a range of skills and dispositions including risk-taking, self-esteem, motivation to learn, problem solving skills, independence, speech and language, emotional intelligence, resilience, balance and coordination. Children have the opportunity to engage in a wide range of activities including den making, identifying trees, plants, insects and animals, creative play, problem solving and team building activities, orienteering, environmental art and craft and fire making.

Wellies and Worms - toddler group every Wednesday morning  


A community pre-school Wellies and Worms session is held every Wednesday morning from 10 - 11.30am with a cost of £1.50 per session.  All parents and carers are welcome to come and join in the fun with their young children.
