Forest School

I like the teachers because they take us to Forest School.

Ned, Class 1



Hedgehog Class is split into two groups and go to Forest School with Mrs Lambert every other Friday.


Children need to make sure that they are dressed appropriately as they will go to Forest School throughout the year, no matter what the weather!  They must wear the following items:


  • Long sleeved top and long trousers (to avoid scratches and stings)

  • A full water bottle

  • A waterproof coat

  • A sun hat (if it is sunny)

  • As the weather gets colder children will need lots of layers, gloves, hats and scarves.

  • They will also need their uniform to change into when they get back

  • Jeans should not be worn as denim becomes very uncomfortable and heavy to wear if it gets wet.


Parents are always really welcome at Forest School, so please sign up at Hedgehog's Class door and come along if you can!


It may sometimes be necessary to cancel Forest School on Health and Safety grounds. We know this can be disappointing for the children and parents but we have to put the safety of the children first. If Forest School is cancelled, children can come into school in their Forest School clothes and will change into their school uniform during the morning.


Why not see us in action by visiting the photo section of the website?
