Forest School and PE

Forest School camp fire

We visit our forest school on a weekly basis with Mr Sherington. At the beginning of the academic year we learn how the forest school works, the rules of the forest and how to behave when we are there. As the year progresses we begin to learn new skills, explore the wildlife and environment and even toast marshmallows on an open fire. Each session also includes a drink of hot chocolate and a biscuit to keep us warm!

We also carry out a PE lesson once a week. This is either in the main school hall or outside on the playground or field. During these sessions children learn a range of new skills such as dance, gymnastics, bat and ball skills, athletics, team games and co-ordination skills.

Please make sure your child has a named PE kit in school at all times. This includes a white top, shorts and either trainers or plimsolls. During colder months of the year it is advised to provide trousers and a jumper in case we go outside. It is vitally important that all items of clothing are labelled.
