Forest School at Bolshaw Primary
2018 – huge thanks to The Tree Station community project who have provided us with wood chips and logs to help us maintain Creature Camp and enhance our spaces for Forest School.
2018/19 – This year we are pleased to have Forest School sessions running two days a week led by Mrs Russ. (Level 3 Forest School Practitioner)
Reception (Outdoor Explorers) and Year 5 enjoy morning sessions and Year 3 are out in the woods in the afternoon taking part in games, crafts, shelter building, using tools, fire lighting, bug hunting and much more. The emphasis is on child led exploration, enquiry based learning and team work. Nature connection and well being are so important and these session offer, all participants, the time and space to run free, rest and reflect in the natural world of Creature Camp. The children learn how to keep themselves, the group and the site safe and of course to have fun in all weathers!
