Forest School

At Carrington Infant School we are very proud to be involved in running the Forest School initiative.  Forest School provides a unique opportunity to learn through practical activities, in an exhilarating environment that is totally removed from the traditional classroom setting. 


The experience provides our children with the opportunity to explore the outdoors, to work together and build self esteem, to problem solve and to engage in a physical and social environment.

We have a fabulous wooded area, with both mature trees and saplings. The children contribute to building natural shelters and we have a ‘fire circle’ surrounded by tree stumps for the class to sit on. Hot chocolate made using water heated by an open fire is a real treat in the colder months.
