Mrs Shreeve is a qualified level 3 Forest School leader and delivers blocks of 6 week sessions on a Monday afternoon on a rota basis giving each class the opportunity to participate and experience the outdoors and the great British weather...come rain or shine!
Children can enjoy activities such as den building, bug hunting, boggit making, fairy/elf house building, scavenger hunts and many many more besides.
At the end of the 6 weeks each class gets to enjoy a camp fire and the ever popular marshmallow toasting!

“Forest School is an inspirational process, that offers ALL learners regular opportunities to achieve, develop confidence and self-esteem, through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland or natural environment with trees.
