Forest School Gallery
We are very lucky at Tiny Beginnings to be able to access the Forest School site belonging to Whitchurch CE Primary.
Each week, we help our older children into their wet suits and wellies and take them to the site where we enhance their learning through nature. Planned activities focus on different areas of learning and encourage the characteristics of effective learning. They are encouraged to observe changes in nature and to learn about road safety and hygiene en route. All outside visits are routinely risk assessed and we adhere to a higher adult to child ratio than in the classroom.
Younger children also learn to put on their wet weather gear but spend time playing and observing on the school field.
Being an area of outstanding natural beauty, we naturally focus on the outdoors as part of our learning and encourage our staff to use it to assist learning wherever possible.
