A Message from Sarah Ratcliffe regarding ‘Forest Schools’

As some of you may be aware, I am currently working towards the Level 3 Forest School Qualification, therefore I will now be leading Forest School sessions. We will endeavour to venture into the woods every Friday up until October half term when Class Three will start swimming.
We are going to be using a private field with woodland which is in Storth a short walk from school, the school have used this field in the past for Forest School Sessions. I have risk assessed the site and all activities that we may be undertaking while in the woods.
These early sessions in the woods will focus on helping the children to feel safe and comfortable in the woodland setting and establishing routines. We will be looking at how we can be safe in the woods, playing games and discovering the interests of the group so that I can plan some exciting activities for future sessions.

We will be attending the sessions in all weather! (Please see below for Clothing and Weather Advice)
Please let me know if you would like to discuss anything to do with Forest School or these sessions.

Best Wishes,
Sarah Ratcliffe
