Money raised by the PTA was used to help build our Envirozone, an outdoor learning zone covered with giant sails, natural planting, willow archway and bug hotels for the children to explore.
The Envirozone helps take lessons outdoors , enabling the children to learn more about nature, the environment and how it changes throughout the seasons.
The beauty of teaching outdoors is that the children often do not perceive it as ‘learning’ and yet they learn some of their most valuable lessons there. The lack of walls means that they feel less inhibited – both physically and mentally .
Every Wednesday afternoon children in Nursery, Reception and Year One/Two take part in a Forest School session.
