John Clifford Primary & Nursery School ‘Be your best. Celebrate success. Together we will be successful.’

Outdoor Education

Outdoor learning sessions are well under way. Our outdoor area is looking good with a new pallet path to the Lodge, gutting and rainbutts installed,raised beds ready for planting veg in spring and over 100 new trees thanks to our Tree Planting event on March 6th.

Mrs Mitchell takes out small groups from most year groups and the children spend two to three hours out in the wooded area working on a variety of projects and playing in many ways.


If taking part in Outdoor sessions, your child will need to bring warm and waterproof clothing and wellies or boots.

We have now taken stock of waterproof suits, waterproof trousers and wellies of all sizes, so we can dress anybody appropriately even if they forget their own gear!


Remember - there is no such thing as unsuitable weather, just unsuitable clothing! Please talk to your child about how many layers, extra socks, gloves, hats etc they need!

Your child will know if they need clothing but please check on the timetable if you are unsure.....

Tree Planting event 6th MARCH 19


On Wednesday this week, children from Year 3,4 and 5 worked together to plant over 100 trees!!

We were joined by some parents, one chair of Governors and a local tree surgeon.

Everyone worked incredibly hard, following instructions from Nic Wort, from the Greenwood Project, who brought all the spades, gloves and equipment we needed for a successful day.

Thank you to those parents who turned up to help and well done to all the children who took part.

Please could everyone be respectful to the newly planted trees, so they have a good chance at rooting quickly.
