The Forest School initiative takes advantage of our fabulous setting next door to Lyttleton playing fields. The children have the opportunity to explore the area, learn about the environment and develop key learning attributes in an informal environment.
Qualified Forest School instructors from Forever Green Forest School deliver engaging sessions during which the children complete a range of tasks that could include; scavenger hunts, working with tools, making dens, solving problems.
This term each class has had between 1 - 3 sessions offering a taster of Forest School.
From September 2019 each class will have a 6 week block across the school year of one session a week. Parents are invited to share the last session of the block with their child. Please look out for your dates.
