Forest Schools operate on the principle that children of all ages can benefit greatly from the learning opportunities inherently present in a woodland environment.
This year, the children in Year 1 have been working in the woodlands and school grounds. The children in Key Stage 2 have been visiting Panshanger Park weekly. They have been learning about the natural environment, how to handle risks and most importantly to use their own initiative to solve problems and co-operate with others.
They have enjoyed making picture frames and wooden tree characters, using equipment such as loppers and identifying various plants, trees and animals. We have all had great fun!
Year 1 made picture frames and created their own pictures using
natural resources such as leaves, berries, flowers and seeds.
