Axe Class Forest School

Forest School is an inspirational process that offers all learners regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland or natural environment”  – The Forest School Association

The children of Axe class (Reception & Year 2) visit Forest School once a week during the first half of the Summer term.  The whole day takes place outdoors and the children take part in a range of making, creating, and exploring tasks.

Here are a few pictures from Forest School. More to follow over the coming weeks.

Yarty Class Forest School

Forest School is an inspirational process that offers all learners regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland or natural environment”  – The Forest School Association

The children of Yarty class (Year 2 & Year 3) visit Forest School once a week during the first half of the Summer term.  The whole day takes place outdoors and the children take part in a range of making, creating, and exploring tasks.

The sessions form the stimulus for most of our learning back at school, hopefully giving the children a rich and challenging experience to reflect on.

Parachute and Skipping Festival

Our reception and year 1 children attended our parachute and skipping festival which involved a colourful display of parachute games, including fun games to help coordination. The parachute games encouraged cooperative, non-competitive play and reinforce turn-taking and sharing. The parachutes also help strengthen the children’s upper torso. The children worked together to make the parachute billow, they also refine perceptual motor skills and develop a sense of rhythm.

The children also completed a variety of skipping stations which helped them learn the skills to skip. These included skipping with long ropes; french skipping and rhymes; electronic skipping; hoop skipping and jumping activities.
