Heart of England Forest

We are very excited to be working with Elaine Skates from Heart of England Forest to develop outdoor learning programmes for primary schools. Temple Grafton class teachers have been sharing planning ideas with Elaine to design outdoor learning sessions that will support the curriculum learning that we deliver in school.

The sessions link to a range of subjects including Science, Design Technology, Geography, Maths and English. Each half term the children spend a day at the Heart of England site at Middle Spernal. So far these sessions have been hugely beneficial and we look forward to further sessions later in the year.

"Spending less time on their computer screens and more time playing outdoor is so important for children. Our Heart of England Forest School site at Wild Wood, Middle Spernal, offers the perfect environment for children to learn about the forest and discover nature, with the added health benefit of spending time in the fresh air."
