Welcome to our Forest School curriculum. Class 1 take part in Forest School activities every Wednesday afternoon on 'Edale Island', a lovely piece of woodland surrounded on one side by a babbling brook. The sessions are led by Forest Schools practitioner Ruth Dixon and accompanied by Swallows Class teacher and volunteers. Please read our Forest School Handbook to find out more about the ethos of Forest Schools and the types of activities the children are involved in. Also follow our adventures in our weekly report in this section.
