Forest School at Binley Woods
We are currently working with Friends of Brandon Wood to develop a site for us to extend our provision form outdoor learning in the woods. Here is our blog on our journey to become a Forest School.
March 2018 Blog:
Learning in the woods adjacent to our school has always been very important to us at Binley Woods Primary School. We regularly use the woods for nature walks, cross country running, art work and so on. Our youngest children go into the woods every week to explore, solve problems, tell stories and be close to the natural world.
Ms Wilson is currently working to complete her Forest School Leader training and this will enable us to make plans for further Forest School Work. Friends of Brandon Woods have also been so supportive of our endeavours to become a Forest School and have cleared a space and created a seating area in Brandon Wood for our young learners to take part in Forest School work.
They have also supported us with some funding so that we can get the project up and running, Their financial support has helped us to purchase equipment and new outdoor clothing for the children so that we can run Forest School all year round. Huge thanks to them - we really value working in partnership with them to develop our children's love of the woods, which we hope will help protect the woods into the future.
