Forest School

All classes from Little Scarlet Class to Year 6 have enjoyed Forest School sessions.  The children have explored our designated site at Tiptree Heath and have gained such a wealth of learning experiences from this opportunity.  Sessions have raised the profile of science in school and has helped us to develop our social, moral, cultural and environmental understanding.

The Tiptree Heath Hedgehogs have enjoyed finding bugs, playing boundary games, building dens, playing team games, using tools to create Stone Age objects and linking learning to class themes (The Stone age, Castles and Traditional Tales).

Thank you so much to all of the parent helpers that make these sessions possible, and also to Joan Pinch, the Heath Warden who designated the site and helps to maintain the area with the help of Friends of Tiptree Heath.

Little Scarlet Class are really enjoying their sessions and have gained some wonderful experiences working with Lucy from the Wildlife trust.  Year 6 look forward to their whole day session which is coming soon.





Huge thanks to Tiptree Building Supplies and Perrywood Garden Centre for the kind donations of tools and equipment they gave to help us get our Forest School sessions up and running.
