Forest School

This term students in Reception have been visiting local nature parks as part of their learning in Forest school.

Led by teachers Mrs Walsh and Mrs Street Forest school enables students to gain a greater understanding of the world and learn about the environment, animals and nature.

This week they visited East Carlton Park and had fun hunting for mini beasts, and observing the reindeers. Reception teacher Miss Murdock said ‘I think Forest School has been really good for the children as it helps them develop as individuals and enables them to explore and understand things that are outside of the classroom. It also helps their team building skills and physical development as they do a lot of running up and down hills.’
