This year, Mrs Mitchell will take out whole classes to spend two to three hours out in the wooded area each week. Please see the attached timetable to check when your child will be doing outdoor Learning.

 

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.....
