This year, with support from the Woodland Trust, Mrs Pallier is introducing Forest School to Belmont! Two classes are taking part this term and they were very excited to start their outdoor learning adventure last week!
Forest School aims to support the whole child – their physical, mental and emotional development - and build on a child’s innate motivation and positive attitude to learning, offering them the opportunities to take supported risks, make choices and initiate learning for themselves, in a woodland or natural environment.
Impala Class have their weekly Forest school session every Monday, whilst Barasingha's is on a Wednesday - whatever the weather! As well as a suitable coat, we ask that children are provided with a pair of named wellies in a bag that can be brought into school on their Forest School day or kept in school if easier!
We are sure that ALL the children will love these sessions and we can’t wait to get going!
