Forest School

We are very pleased to be able to announce that during Autumn Term, Year 2 will be taking part in Forest School sessions at Lauriston School.

During Forest School sessions, children are encouraged to work with others to carry out activities such as den/shelter building, role play, exploration, practical and creative skills and tasks.

These sessions will be delivered by Miss Clare, who works across the Federation, and is a trained Forest School Lead Teacher.

Forest School sessions at Lauriston will be on a Tuesday afternoon with the first one being Tuesday 14th September.

Autumn 1 half-term: Poplar Class will take part in sessions
Autumn 2 half term: Hawthorn Class will take part in sessions

The sessions will take place on a Tuesday afternoon in the forest area in Victoria Park and on our school site. Children will be split into groups of 15 for the session.
Please ensure that your child has the following clothing to change into each session:

  • Outdoor shoes – walking boots, wellingtons or old pair of trainers
  • Warm socks
  • A warm coat – preferably waterproof
  • School jumper or fleece
  • School t-shirt
