Forest School

Forest School is an important part of our curriulum here at Padbury. Currently, Foundation and KS1 (Maple and Beech class) visit every other week and either vsiit a wooded area near our allotment or we walk a little further and do different activities in Millenium Woods, in Padbury itself. We are comitted to every child through the school having at least 10 outdoor learning sessions each year, whether that is through forest school or through visits to places such as Waddesden Manor, residential outdoor learning establishements, it is important that all childrern benefit from what outdoor learning can offer. 

During forest school, children take part in a range of activities. Some of these are teacher led, such as using a knife to whittle wood, some are more independent to enable children to learn from experience and make choices. This fits with our determination to develop our sustainability curriulum and for children to value and appreciate the world around us.
