School Clubs

Forest School

Chase View Forest School sessions take place within the school day and are run by Ms Hardy and Mrs Babington.
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!

Lego Club

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.

Shelly the Tortoise

Shelly – our Tortoise

So, Shelly is very cute, races around really quickly and has a great smile. Our children love her, but I think the staff love her even more.

Our Hens


Also in our little menagerie, we have  6 hens we have reared from eggs. They have grown feathers, blossomed with love care and attention from many of the children who pass them and say ‘hello’. Of course, they form the cornerstone of that great reading book – The Little Red Hen.

Our Bearded Dragons

Bearded Dragons

Our Bearded dragons, Didi and Billie (both girls), have the best behaviour as pets. We haven’t bought a leash yet, but we know that they can be taken for walks!! Didi and Billie have a very docile and “happy-go-lucky” attitude that makes them great for handling.

Our Leopard Gecko

Leopard Gecko

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.

Our Stick Insects

Stick Insects

Our stick insects are great. Although they aren't cuddly like cats or rabbits or guinea pigs, they're quiet and they wobble as they walk.

Our Fish

Our Gold Fish

We have a selection of gold fish to soothe and comfort you in our foyer: Comet Goldfish; Fantail Goldfish; Pearlscale Goldfish and Bubble Eye Goldfish. Why not come along and meet them?
