Dear Parents / Carers


Next term, it is Year 4’s turn to have Forest School sessions. The Year 4 classes will have sessions on alternate weeks starting with 4SW on Thursday 19th April.


Children need to wear their school uniform as normal and bring their Forest School clothes in a named bag to be hung on their pegs in the cloakroom.  Please ensure their Forest School clothes are in school every week in case we have to swap sessions around.


To take part in Forest School this term the children will need a change of clothing as they will get very muddy. May we suggest they bring at least;


A long sleeved top or jumper

A waterproof coat

An extra pair of socks (these may get wet and dirty and so will need to be changed)

A pair of leggings/tracksuit bottoms

A pair of sturdy boots or wellies

A pair of waterproof trousers if you have them

A hat, a scarf and gloves (until the weather improves)


We always need adult volunteers to join us in Forest School. Even if you can’t make all of the sessions any help would be greatly appreciated. Please let your child’s class teacher know if you can volunteer for any of the sessions.


If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to ask a member of staff.


Yours faithfully

Mrs D Winter

Year 3 & 4 Senior Learning Support Assistant
