Outdoor Environment & Forest School

At Bridgetown we have our own Forest School!

In Forest School we focus on having fun! The children are allowed to explore for themselves the natural environment, learning to appreciate and gain a respect for nature. They learn to communicate and co-operate with one another, through undertaking 'tasks' presented to them. The tasks are generated through a 'hook', where the children's attention/imagination is gained/stimulated and they can then follow through a task, following their own leads. The children show improved concentration outside, which leads into the classroom and their imagination is also developed/encouraged, which again leads into the classroom. We also link F School into the new curriculum for Science and Geography in Year 1, where we study the changing seasons and look at tree identification. F School is also hugely beneficial to children on the SEN register and also to those who may lack some confidence. There are no 'right or wrong' rules and children learn to work things out for themselves, giving their self esteem a boost in the process. WE LOVE FOREST SCHOOL!

We also have our own award winning garden!

We are very proud to have won the Stratford in Bloom primary schools' competition for four consecutive years!
