At Abbey View Primary Academy we are very proud to be involved in running the Forest School initiative. Forest School provides a unique opportunity to learn through practical activities, in an exhilarating environment that is totally removed from the traditional classroom setting.
The experience provides children with the opportunity to explore the outdoors, to work together and build self-esteem, to problem solve and to engage in a physical and social environment.
We have a fabulous wooded area, with both mature trees and saplings. Children will contribute to building natural shelters and we have ‘fire circles’ surrounded by tree stumps for the class to sit on. Hot chocolate made using water heated by an open fire is a real treat in the colder months.
