At Leavening we have our own wildlife and Forest School site. This enhances our science curriculum and allows children to access nature.
These sessions will be led by Mrs Mitchell, who is currently doing the Level 3 Forest School Leader’s course. The children will participate in 8 weekly sessions on a rota throughout school and will include just some of the following activities:
Creative art outdoors
Learning how to tie knots and make shelters
Cooking on an open fire
Making various objects and utensils out of wood, using specialist tools.
Drama and story telling
Maths and problem solving come to life.
Flora and Fauna identification
Team building games
