St Thomas's Forest School
Welcome back to a new and exciting school year. I hope you have have a lovely break are are recharged and ready to explore and learn about nature and the natural world around us.
Over the Summer term Mr Hyde's Y2 class spent 6 weeks learning and exploring in our new Forest School area.
Every session provides the children with opportunities to handle tools, camp fire cooking, take risks and explore and play in nature, discuss and learn about the natural world we live in and help develop their physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing.
This year Mr Hyde will continue to work with Y2 in the Forest School, however will work alongside other year groups. There will also be a Forest School after school club which will be open to KS2 children. I am every excited about the up and coming year and hope the children enjoy the sessions and love learning in nature.
I would like to say a massive thank you for all the local businesses that have helped me create the Forest area by generously giving materials, equipment and time.
I would like to give a special thank you to the LK Group who generously gave the school a large majority of the wood, wood chippings and stumps to help create the area. Also supporting me with labour and delivery. Their support has been greatly appreciated.
I would also like to thank TreeStation for supplying wood for the area.
Local business Walker Brothers Services on Pimhole Road have also been a fantastic supporter of the Forest School by supplying the school with wooden pallets for the 'Bug Hotel' and 'Mud Kitchen'
