Forest School

Currently,  regular Forest School sessions are only available to Reception class but the Forest School site will be open soon for all children to access during lunchtime as part of OPAL play and Miss Salter plans to open it to children and parents at open events throughout the year. 
Miss Salter is the only Forest School qualified member of staff so if you have any questions please speak to her via the school office. Miss Salter is happy to offer suggestions for activities to do at home.

Forest School Open Event Autumn 2 
A massive thank you to everyone who came and explored our Forest School site. It was lovely to be able to invite everyone in to see the site open again and to show an example of activities that can be offered. The new mud kitchen was very popular as well as some of the crafts like leaf necklaces and the scavenger hunt! Below are some of the feedback quotes that parents/ careers gave: 
"Very good experience with my child. Good to see amazing nature place for them to learn and explore"
"A great space for children to learn about nature along with other skills. My child enjoyed climbing on the ropes"
"What a lovely space for the children and so calming. I think you could so nature bathing lying on those fab cushions"
"Love the forest school - so happy it will be open and accessible at lunchtime. Great opportunities for exploration. Cheers" 
"Forest school is so lovely! What a wonderful opportunity for the children to learn outside and get a bit muddy! (after being so sanitised for so long)"
"My children had a great time, can't wait for the next invite" 
Having a fire is the most requested activity that the children want to do on our site. Miss Salter has only recently qualified so she was unable to offer it previously and for this open event, it was not something that could be safely managed. Miss Salter does have plans to run a similar event with a fire element at some point in the year, providing it can be done safely.
