Cockshutt CE Primary School & Nursery

Forest School

Class 4 experienced another fantastic session with Ben at Forest School. This week we were challenged to make a shelter and test if it was waterproof! We also tried to make a stretcher but our only resource was a rope. The children rose to the challenge and demonstrated some fantastic team work. 

Forest School

We are a rural community so exploring the outdoors is an extremely important part of our curriculum.  Pupils learn to take risks, to work as a team, to appreciate our wonderful world and make the most our area.  The seasonal change aspect of science is taught through Forest School and the opportunities for learning are limitless outdoors.  Health and well-being is an essential part of our school ethos, we believe pupils benefit from the outdoors in all seasons, this also enhances pupils attitudes to learning in the classroom.  Please browse the pictures to see what our children have been doing.

 

Dirt on My Shirt

There's dirt on my shirt

And leaves in my hair

There's mud on my boots

But i don't really care

 

Playing outside is so much fun

To breathe the clean air

And feel the warm sun

 

To stomp in a puddle

Or climb a big tree

Makes me quite happy

Just look and you'll see
