Dear Orchid Class Parents and Carers,
RE: Your child’s day for Forest School – Orchid Class, Group A
Forest School for all Reception children will be starting in the week commencing 18th April 2022.
For your child Forest School will take place on either Tuesday or Friday as part of the regular Reception curriculum. The classes are split into two groups for Forest School, Group A and Group B. Your child is in Group A and will take part in Forest School every other week.
For the Summer term your child will have Forest School on the following days:
|Week 1||Tuesday 19/04/22|
|Week 3||Tuesday 03/05/22|
|Week 5||Friday 20/05/22|
Forest School happens in all weathers (rain or shine) and because the children are encouraged to explore our outdoor site for themselves, (e.g. digging, making mud pies, hunting for sticks or building shelters etc.) they are likely to get a bit mucky. In order for children to take a full and active part, they must be adequately clothed.
On the days that your child is taking part in Forest School please ensure that they come to school dressed in:
- Long sleeved T-shirt / top, trousers, socks, and an extra sweater/ sweat-shirt if it is cold
And that they bring to school:
- Wellington (rubber) boots or suitable outdoor shoes in a named bag, spare socks, waterproof jacket and gloves if it is cold, or a sun hat if it is hot.
If you do not have any of these, please let us know as we can arrange to have spare sets of these items available. The school will provide waterproof trousers, but if you have your own it would be helpful if children could bring these too.
Meanwhile, if you have any questions about Forest School then please do not hesitate to talk to Mr Murray or your class teacher after school.
