Our Forest School 

Forest School Fun

Our Forest School is going from strength to strength and children are enjoying their visits to the wood. Many dens have been built, trees have been climbed, mini beasts explored, outside art carried out and gadgets made. There has been much laughter, team work, courage and determination shown. I am looking forward to exploring the autumn changes in the woods and countryside with the children this term and connecting these changes to our lives and school work.

Enjoying the Outdoors Whatever the Weather

The Forest School motto is we go out ‘Whatever the Weather’. We have an array of high quality outdoor waterproof clothing, kindly donated by FOMS, which has meant that this is what we are able to do, particularly as this year, ‘Whatever the Weather’ seems to have meant exploring the effects of a lot of heavy rain on our surroundings – even in the summer months!

Wellie Boots Wanted

Children often forget to bring suitable clothing. This isn’t a problem as we are able to rustle up jumpers, joggers and tops, but we are unable to magic up any wellie boots – they just don’t seem to appear in our lost property bin! Our walk to the wood looks to be very muddy and wet this year and trainers just won’t keep warm and dry. We would welcome any good quality second hand wellies to put in the cupboard for our rainy days. All sizes would be welcome and put to good use.

Help Always Appreciated

If you would like to volunteer some time to help our children enjoy the wood and outdoors, please get in touch with me through the school office. You don’t need any experience, you just need to be happy being outdoors whatever the weather.
