Welcome to 'The Classroom of Wonder.'
In addition to our fabulous off-site Forest School provision, we are lucky enough to have an outdoor classroom onsite that can be more easily and regularly accessed to compliment learning across the curriculum.
This special space, along with its storage lodge, was officially opened by Sir David Hempleman-Adams in 2021. He was so utterly impressed and commented on how he didn’t know of any other school in the area with such provision. He went on to tell the children all about the expeditions he had recently been on and how an outdoor classroom like ours provides the perfect starting point for budding explorers!
Pupils, staff, visitors and Preschool regularly enjoy this outdoor space which can be used in all weathers. This provision mirrors the fantastic work children do weekly in the woods in their forest school sessions and allows teachers to plan in outdoor sessions, where it fits in with the curriculum, at any time in the school day. Worships and special events are also held in this space which benefit from the act of togetherness it enables.
The addition of ‘Wonder’ to our existing classrooms of Joy, Faith and Courage offers endless possibilities for cross curricular learning and outdoor learning which we are all so passionate about at our little school. We all agree that we are very lucky to have such a fantastic facility!
