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!
This week at Forest School the children got into three groups Team Pippa with Alora, Darriyus and Phoebe Team Flossy with Ivy, Klara and Aaryan and lastly Team Frank with Thomas, Henry, Jamie and Angus there challenge was to build a bug hotel. Each week the children will visit their hotels to see who has come to visit.
