Outdoor Learning & Forest School

The Roundhouse Project Autumn 2017

We were fortunate enough to be awarded £10,000 from Heritage Lottery which funded Kate Edwards and Charlotte Eve from www.cobcourses.com to create the Anglo-Saxon house in Autumn 2017. Our pupils were able to pop out each day to see and hear the progress and also got stuck in wattle and daubing the walls.

Now that it has been completed, it enhances our outdoor learning facilities as children use it as a classroom area during Forest School and outdoor learning sessions.

Forest Schools

Pupils have regular Forest School sessions with our specialist teacher, Mrs Robertshaw.  However, our other staff also make use of the outside space in our school grounds as much as possible to offer children a unique learning experiences.  We are very fortunate to have many areas around the grounds for the children to make use of – the school field, gardening area, wooded area, wildlife garden including pond and outdoor space at the front of the school. Our exceptional village location allows us to explore the nearby fields and woods and the hills and Jurassic coast beyond.
