Forest School/ Outdoor Learning 

We love being in nature and fully recognise all the benefits of being outside. We have a lucky to have our own beautiful forest on site; a huge field; a giant trim trail and outdoor play areas to support our learning as much as possible.  In Early Years  we always embrace all weather outdoor experiences and actively encourage risk-taking, which includes climbing; jumping and allowing children to build their own dens using all sorts of woodland treasures to suit their creative play and build up those strong muscles! The wooden trim trail in our main playground  encourages children to use their shoulder muscles,  as well as rolling large tyres; riding bikes and scooters down to the forest and carry large scale guttering and crates  too - this all helps to build up resilience; co-ordination and strength, fine motor skills and prepares us for getting ready to write. 


  • Please make sure your child always has warm clothes in school.
  • Don't forget wellies and waterproof, hooded coats. 
  • Have a bag of spare clothes and footwear in school - just in case! 
  • Although we have wetsuits and aprons available, there are times when  children get so engrossed in their amazing experiences that they may get wet or messy - please be understanding of how important this is for their learning and development!
