Forest School

Welcome to our forest school page.

Come and see what we have been up to in EYFS and Year 1.

Process Art

This week the children have looked having a go at some process art. They loved experimenting with mark making and colour mixing and they really enjoyed getting messy!

Toasting Marshmallows

This week the children in year one and reception had a fantastic time toasting marshmallows outside as part of their forest school session. Miss Barrett, Mrs Millward, Mrs Beaumont, Mrs Noble and all of the children had a fabulous time! The children were fantastic at staying safe around the fire pit and following all of the rules. The children can't wait to have another go!

We love orienteering. We have to follow a map carefully to find all of the control points hidden around the school grounds. We had so much fun!!

We love listening to stories outside, playing in the mud, collecting sticks and using our imagination to turn them into lots of different things like a magic wand, fishing rod or a flute.

We have looked for signs of Autumn.

We made firework and rocket pictures using natural materials for bonfire night.

We have made our very own nature crowns.

We love to walk in the woods and splash in the puddles.

We get very muddy!

We listen to stories outside.

There’s dirt on my shirt

And leaves in my hair.

There’s mud on my boots

But I don’t really care!


Learning outside is so much fun!

To breathe the clean air

And feel the warm sun.


To stomp in a puddle

Or climb a big tree.

Makes me quite happy

Just look and you’ll see!

We did a great job working together to build our own dens. Oh and what forest school session would be complete without a walk in the woods and a jump in some mud!

We had so much fun following our maps to find control points and discover the hidden words - FOREST SCHOOL.

We love jumping in muddy puddles.

We have been using sticks to help us understand longer and shorter vocabulary.

We have been using sticks to make shapes.

We have been using leaves to create rubbings on paper and natural materials to make pictures.

We made clocks outside and had a go at showing different times.

We made our very own Wattle and Daub wall.

We worked as a team to build our very own den.
