We are lucky at Waberthwaite C of E Primary School to be able to offer our pupils the opportunity to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through regular hands-on learning experiences in a beautiful woodland setting.
Class 2 Forest School
Today we spent a wonderfully sunny afternoon looking for signs of Spring and studying the plants that grow in our woods. We looked closely at the plant diversity and considered why certain plants grow in certain areas of the forest.
On our way down to the forest we chose 3 lines on the palms of our hand to highlight with pen. We then looked for similar lines in nature as we made our way through the field and down the track.
We can't wait to go to the forest again!

The woodland fairies needed our help! Their houses had experienced some storm damage and they were expecting visitors. We helped them by building some new fairy houses. We had a very muddy but very fun trip to the forest!
This afternoon we created some art using the forest as our inspiration.
Today it was the turn of year four and the year five girls to visit the forest. A great time was had by all!
It was really great to visit the forest today...the first time for a long time. Year six and the year five boys spent time exploring all of their favourite parts of the woods. Our camp fire marshmallows went down extremely well too!
