Forest School

At Greenvale we are incredibly lucky to have a large area of space behind the school that we use specifically for Forest School sessions.  

Mrs Catchpole, our specially trained Forest School teacher, runs two sessions a week, as well as after school clubs which are always very well attended by children at our school.  

Sessions include a variety of activities including:

  • Den building
  • Outdoor art and craft activities
  • Construction involving natural materials
  • Creating tools and instruments such as a bow and arrow
  • Learning how to create a fire using a flint and steel
  • Looking at nature that lives in and around Forest School
  • Consideration of seasonal changes 

Our Year 1 class are in receipt of a session each week throughout the academic year which ties into their learning and thoroughly enjoy their sessions.
