Our Outdoor Curriculum
Our Forest on the Field
In February 2021, after talking to our children about how to improve our school site, we started to design, plant and develop our very own 'Forest on the Field'. To follow our exciting journey, click here to read our blog.
We are excited to be developing our very own Forest School provision in school. Mrs Burman is undertaking her Level 3 Accredited Forest School Practitioner training this year and all of our children get at least one Forest School session every week in their PPA session.
This year we have started to work with OPAL (Outdoor Play and Learning) who have a track record of improving the quality of play and positive behaviours in schools. A structured playtime with a focus on different types of play and greater variety as well as ‘risk taking’ activities has proven to lead to fewer behaviour incidents and an increase in attention from the children during lessons.
