The Great Outdoors!

Parent's Forest School Morning

This term we invited parents to take part in a forest school session to allow them to experience the learning that takes place during our outdoor learning sessions. The feedback we received was fantastic and it was clear that a great time was had by all!







Feedback from Parents:


Just to say a massive thanks to you all for the opportunity this morning to experience a mini forest school session! It was great fun …. Everyone enjoyed it! The feeling I got at my age when I was able to light a fire 😂 it was such a buzz , I can just imagine the children’s faces when they achieve it for themselves. No wonder my child looks forward to them so much. It’s such a bonus that the staff can deliver this for them! Thanks again, Catherine Norfolk


Thank you for giving parents the opportunity to have a go at forest school, I really enjoyed it. It was very interesting, educational and fun to see the skills the children learn and to experience what they do, I can fully understand why they love it so much, and The Thomson Garden looks fantastic.

Keep up the good work,

Many Thanks,

Elaine Speight.
