At Wyndham Park Infants' School, we aim to provide active and exciting learning opportunities that represent our school vision, and build upon our school values –

· Teamwork

· Resilience

· Respect

· Kindness

· Love

Our highly skilled teaching team use outdoor learning to make the curriculum fun and engaging. Staff have taken part in training with the Woodland Trust and there are Outdoor Learning Leaders in every year group. Each year group has timetabled opportunities to learn outdoors and develop skills across the National Curriculum, alongside learning forest school skills, such as den building, knotting, and fire safety.

This approach allows children to enjoy nature and enjoy active, hands-on learning in our specially designed grounds. Developing forest school skills provides a unique way of building independence, self-esteem and a positive attitude towards learning in children and young people as they explore and experience the natural world for themselves. Valuable life skills are learnt in every session

Forest school

On Forest School days, children should come to school dressed for their outdoor learning - wellington boots/sturdy walking
boots, laces only if they can do them independently, waterproof coat AND trousers ideally, warm layers, hair tied back,
and spare shoes to wear indoors.

Unfortunately we cannot allow children outdoors without the appropriate clothing because it would be neither enjoyable or safe
