Our aim is to foster a deeper connection with the natural world, promote environmental awareness, and support the holistic development of all our students.

A Vision for the Future

Our Nature School is not just an outdoor activity; it's a comprehensive educational approach that integrates with our existing curriculum to enhance learning for children aged 4 to 11. It provides an alternative, hands-on learning environment that is especially beneficial for vulnerable children, offering them the support and engagement they need to thrive.

  • Linking Learning with Nature: Our sessions are carefully designed toPhoto by Markus Spiske on Unsplash connect with prior knowledge from the National Curriculum, making learning relevant and exciting through real-world applications.

  • Safe and Supportive Environment: The health and safety of your children are paramount. We adhere to stringent safety protocols, including regular risk assessments, to ensure a secure learning space for all.

  • A Commitment to Growth: Our dedicated Nature School team works tirelessly to maintain and enhance the learning site, creating an ever-evolving space that maximizes educational opportunities.

  • Inclusivity and Diversity: We embrace and celebrate diversity, ensuring that our Nature School is a place where every child feels valued and included.

Our Promise to You
  • Holistic Development: Beyond academic growth, your child will develop critical life skills such as resilience, teamwork, and problem-solving, all while exploring the beauty of nature.

  • Continuous Feedback and Improvement: We are committed to continuous dialogue with our curriculum leaders and teachers, ensuring that the Nature School Provision remains responsive to the needs of our students and aligned with our educational goals.

  • A Community of Learners: The Nature School is more than just a program; it's a community where children, teachers, and parents come together to support learning and foster a sense of belonging.

What we learned this week:

 

This week at Nature School, the sun decided to come out- which was lovely!

Our classes have been very busy this week. We have been sieving compost, trying out our brand new shelter, planting trees, watering the new trees and doing a litter pick.

All classes have also been learning about birds’ eggs – why an egg is egg shaped, what their different colours are, as well as recognising common British birds eggs. They have applied their art knowledge to colour mix and paint their chosen bird’s egg.

          

          

 

Previous Weeks' Adventures:

Nature School braved the rain again last week! Children have been making bird feeders using lard and a variety of seeds. They are dotted all around the school site – how many you can spot?

We have also been doing some planting and tree maintenance with some classes!
