Outdoor Learning

Our Outdoor Learning sessions are undertaken by the class teacher and support by the class teaching assistant. Each half term every class will be building on prior knowledge and learning new skills.

Community Big Dig:

On the 11th June Miss Pounder, helped by some lovely teachers, church members and the PTA, held a community big dig project. We were blown away with the amount of volunteers made up of pupils, parents, friends of our school families, nursery children, ex pupils of St Paul’s and volunteers for St Paul’s church. We removed lots of Himalayan Balsam which is an invasive species of plant from the rind road to create a bee corridor after the Eco Warriors came to the conclusion that there were not enough flowers for the bees and maybe this is why they sting the children. The children also got to do some craft work with Claire from church and even enter a colouring competition held by Civic Pride. Children got to share Larkhill Rise Forest School with their families and friends and even enjoy a sticky s’more to keep them going.


Parents must complete the permission form and discuss the Code of Conduct with their child. The Code of Conduct outlines the types of activities that take place in our outdoor learning sessions and the safety rules we abide by at Larkhill Rise Forest school.

Children will need to have a pair of wellington boots, a pair of long trousers (no jeans, shorts, skirts or dresses), a long sleeve t-shirt, a long sleeve jumper and a waterproof coat and a pair of waterproof trousers. In cold weather hats and gloves are recommended as our outdoor learning sessions take place in all weathers except high winds, storms and ice. In warm weather sun hats and sun cream is recommended.
