The challenge for our Junior School pupils in last week’s forest school was to move a heavy box from one spot to another. The catch- they were only allowed to use two ropes and the things they could find in the woods! The children had to race to see who could move the box out of the fire pit the fastest. We believe that not all classrooms have four walls. We are lucky to have such a wonderful resource in forest school, which builds confidence, independence and improves mental health. The exposure to manageable risk helps make our pupils into self-sufficient team players.
