Forest School sessions run during each academic year. These sessions are organised on a rotational basis whereby each class from Year 1 to Year 6 attends three sessions on a Wednesday afternoon.
The sessions are led and managed by Dan Coates, an experienced park ranger. For further information on Dan please refer to http://www.rangerdan.co.uk. Mrs Finnegan and the class teachers also facilitate the sessions. All the sessions are fully supervised and have been risk assessed.
During the sessions the children will participate in a range of camp craft activities including:-
Making an out-door bush craft area
Fire lighting and carving
Cooking over a fire
Baking and toasting marshmallows
Nettle string and clay pottery
Den building and shelters
This is an exciting enrichment session designed to improve self-esteem, team-work, social and communication skills, awareness of risk-taking, and wellbeing.
