At St. Margaret's we seek to engage the children in a broad range of learning experiences throughout their time with us. On a Friday morning, one year group take part in a forest school session run by Mrs Norris in Berwickhall woods. Each academic year, school years 2, 4, 6 and reception are given the opportunity to take part in a 10-week forest school course. This means children will attend forest school for 40 sessions during their time with us. Each session is approximately 3 hours long. In forest schools children learn teamwork skills, life skills such as fire-lighting and building, have a chance to encounter the awe and wonder of the natural world and have an amazing and fun learning experience as well!
