For the last term, Year 3 children have been participating in Forest School, an initiative which has been funded by the Willows Friends PTA. We have two teachers in school trained to do Forest school, with another looking to being trained this year.
We really value this opportunity for outdoor learning, which opens children's minds up to endless possibilities. Here are some of the comments made by our enthusiastic pupils.
“It’s fun because you’re working with your friends outside.” - Noah
“ At the end of Forest School we have a cup of hot chocolate!” – Jai
“Mr Stickley is basically teaching us how to survive in the wild” - Ben
“We are learning how to survive if we get lost when we are camping” – Laurence
