The nursery children enjoyed a busy morning at Forest School. We started by walking around the boundary and learning about the Forest School code of conduct. We had great fun playing a game of  '1, 2, 3 Where are you?'


                  The rest of the morning was spent enjoying free play and exploring the woodland.

Great balancing on the slack line.

Lovely imaginative play in the small world area.

Some children constructed their own obstacle course and with support from their friends manoeuvred
across it taking great care.

Investigating with blossom and water.

Bug finding.

We finished the morning with snack and hot chocolate.
What a lovely,  busy morning.

Key Stage 1 and Foundation Easter Service

Key Stage 1 and Foundation had a beautiful Easter service delivered to us by Mrs Skevington.  She used the Easter garden which Nursery had made to retell the story.  The children were so engaged and it was a lovely way to share this important story. 

Thank you to Mrs Skevington who told the story in such a sensitive and empathetic way. 

Easter Service - Year 5 from SC & JT

Today we went to the Church to perform our Easter service. I enjoyed saying my words as I had put so much hard work into it.I think people enjoyed it because we tried our hardest. I am impressed with everyone as they spoke their parts really clearly and tried their very best.

Today was the Easter Service taken by Year 5. I think it went exceedingly well, even though I was quite scared of standing up and singing in front of so many people.  A t the beginning I felt shy, although when we got to the end I felt proud that I had sung in front of so many children and adults. Next time, I’m going to try and challenge myself by saying some words.

The Easter service went much better than I thought it would. At the beginning, the audience all joined in with a hymn. I felt really nervous and at the end felt a sense of relief. At the time I felt proud of myself and everyone that took part as people could see we had put in 100% effort. The only thing that went wrong was one of the microphones not working properly!

Sports leaders at SRH 2019

On Monday 18th March 2019, eleven pupils from VW and PASB officiated a Rugby Tournament for SC and JT. We were very proud of their role-modelling, conduct and knowledge of the sport. To date, we have had fifty-seven pupils officiate a house tournament this year.



On our final week at Forest School the children discovered some tiny nests with chicks in along with some empty nests. The children went on a hunt in the woodland to find the lost chicks before creating their own nests out of clay and natural materials.

The rest of the morning was spent enjoying free play in the woodland.  There were some fantastic creations in the mud kitchen, magic potions being made and some great balancing on the slack  line.

We finished the morning with Mrs Mawson sharing the Easter story with the class. The children enjoyed a warming hot chocolate while reflecting on the story and their time at Forest School.
