Outdoor Learning



In wind, rain, sleet, ice and very cold weather Year 1W and Year 3L have carried out great work in Forest School sessions!


The whole school has also taken part in Bird Watch.

We have discovered that we have a range of birds visiting our school grounds and we are encouraging them by feeders and nesting boxes around our grounds!
