Dear Parent / Carer,
Year 3 are invited to join Forest School which will be run by Mr Levett. Your child will particpate for one afternoon in school time each week for a 6-week program, week beginning 03.05.21 (we realise that this will carry over into the next half term).
(NOTE: Monday 3rd May is a Bank holiday. So that Chestnut don't miss out, some of the children will go on Tuesday with Beech class and some will go with Larch class. Please bring in forest school clothes on Tuesday - ready for either day).
The Forest School activities are always hands-on, and will often find children learning new skills and using tools in a controlled and safe environment. All activities are risk assessed thoroughly and the ratio of adult to child is 1:8. Come rain or shine, the children will be in the copse to learn and therefore we need to ensure that they are wearing suitable outdoor clothing:
- Old t-shirt or comfortable long sleeve top
- Wellingtons or sturdy trainers
- Waterproof trousers or spare trousers (i.e. jogging bottoms - PE kit joggers are fine)
- Waterproof jacket/ Warm fleece/ Warm coat if the weather is cold
Children will wear school uniform to school and change before Forest School each day. Old clothes are preferable. If your child does not bring spare clothes, then they WILL still be allowed to participate. Please bare in mind that their school uniform will almost certainly get dirty!
Please note that consent must be given before your child is able to participate in the Forest School lessons.
