Forest School

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.
