Adventure, challenge and explore!

Our Year 5 pupils recently had a week long residential at Derwent Hill Outdoor Center. While there, the children got the chance to complete the John Muir Award. This is a nationally recognised, environmental award, which requires participants to ‘Discover, Explore, Conserve and Share’. The children engaged in a variety of tasks, including working with the Environment Agency, to plant over 100 trees, which will inhibit the erosion of a river bank. Well done to everyone who took part.

Forest Fun

Forest School is an inspirational process, that offers ALL learners regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland or natural environment with trees.

Forest School is a learning approach that sits within and compliments the wider context of outdoor  education.

Our Year 5 children have had the chance to engage in some of the Forest School activities.
