Woodland Adventures in Reception
Every Wednesday Reception pupils take part in an afternoon of adventure, learning about the great outdoors through the Junior School’s Woodland Adventures initiative. Woodland Adventures has now been running for three years and allows pupils the opportunity to explore the school site with the SES Director of Outdoor Education Edward Smith. The pupils learn about nature and have been piecing together a map which will pinpoint a location, external to the School site, to be explored in the New Year.
Each Wednesday pupils also have a Forest School session with Anita Mould our Forest School leader. This gives the pupils the opportunity to learn about the natural world around them and develop specific forestry skills, including listening and observing attentively, using simple wood crafting tools and working towards using fires for warmth and cooking.
