St Peter's RC Primary School

Forest School

At St Peter’s Catholic Primary school, we are lucky enough to have a fantastic Forest School on site. Our EYFS Leaders Miss Akinboyewa and Miss Reynolds have both completed their Forest School Leader qualifications. 

Forest school is an exciting opportunity for your child to experience nature and learn outdoors. It acts as a child-centred learning process that offers opportunities for holistic growth. 

At our Forest School sessions the children learn from first hand experience and develop skills such as independence, perseverance and responsibility.  These are all skills that will help them become lifelong learners. At St Peter's children have shown to develop socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually. Children engage in activities such as building dens, building bug hotels, creating leaf collages and more. Through these activities, our children are given the opportunities to engage in real life problem solving and work as a team.
