Across the school all the children are working towards obtaining a Forest School award - starting with bronze, progressing to silver, gold and platinum. The children are able to learn new skills and knowledge which are related to Forest School and the environment. Children are able to demonstrate and practise their understanding/knowledge through practical activities to gain their award. During the academic year 2016-2017 a number of our year 4,5,and 6 children gained their bronze award.
Forest School Kit: If your child is in Reception/KS1 we will provide your child with waterproof trousers to wear. If your child is in KS2 we recommend a pair of waterproof trousers be purchased as they are a good layer of protection from the elements.
Please ensure your child has old clothes, spare underwear, a coat, a hat (to suit the time of year) and gloves in school every Thursday (Reception/KS1) and Friday (KS2) - these need to be in a separate bag (if your child gets wet and muddy we will change our clothing at the earliest opportunity, placing our clothes in the bag you have provided).
Please check your child's wellington boots from time to time for holes and fit.
