Chase View Forest School sessions take place within the school day and are run by Mrs Love and Mrs Jellows.
Forest School is a fantastic opportunity for children to learn and develop new skills through hands-on experiences in our natural environment. The philosophy of Forest School is to encourage and inspire individuals. Children will take part in a series of sessions which encourage the development of skills such as resilience, understanding how to stay safe, teambuilding, making healthy choices and developing empathy.
Children are encouraged to be in charge of their own learning and sessions are mainly made up of child-led learning experiences. The children go out whatever the weather, come rain, snow or shine! Some of the activities we enjoy are fire lighting, wide games, making natural art, den building, cooking over a fire and barefoot walks. Forest School hot chocolate and toasted marshmallows are a firm favourite!
Archery - Key Stage 2
Archery is easy to learn but difficult to master. Children learn the basics in minutes and get to use safe equipment to help them to get better. Children practice in a fun and competitive atmosphere and are led by an external sporting group.
Multi-Sports - Key Stage 2
A selection of sports are taught, and played by our children: Handball, Fencing, Football, Hockey, Basketball, Benchball and VX. Being fast moving game VX is a cross between Lacrosse and Benchball. Our children love it.
Lego Club - Key Stage 2
This club delivers play that's fun, educational and enriching for each child. Children follow a six-week theme with guided instructions for children to build a project, connect it to a motor and battery and watch their vision come to life.
Due to her docile and placid nature, Bolt, our very own Leopard Gecko really is a pet for all members of the family. She is happy to be held by children, and will slowly walk across gentle hands. She is not aggressive by nature but like all animals should be treated with respect.
