Forest school attire – opportunities for outside learning!

Good afternoon parents!

I have been getting a lot of questions of whether the class need their wellies and long waterproofs for this year. I sent home the ones from Reception so that parents could check whether the ones they have still fit and are comfortable. I do intent on making use of the forest school area in lessons, especially starting next term when the children study microhabitats and examine nature in art.

Please can your child bring in a pair of wellies and a long waterproof (one that covers their arms and legs). It is policy that a child is not allowed in the forest school area without the correct attire so, unless every child has the correct attire, we cannot use the forest school area. I will keep the wellies and waterproofs in my cupboard so they don’t need to go on their pegs.

This is an example of a child properly dressed for forest school

P.S. Hopefully your child has passed on the blog password for this year. If not, please contact me and I will share that with you.
