We are excited to announce we will soon be running Forest School sessions at St Francis School, beginning next half term for Reception children and expanding to a number of other year groups from September. These sessions will be led by Mrs Rankin who is currently working to set up our Forest School site in the orchard area at the bottom of the school field.

We would be extremely grateful if you have any of the following items you could donate to help set up our Forest School:

Metal baking tins, muffin tins, large spoons etc.

Gardening trowels or spades

Woodland creature soft toys e.g. hedgehogs, owls, foxes, mice, British birds, snakes, badgers

Wool, ribbon, or string in any lengths and colours

Toy dinosaurs, bugs, trucks or diggers

A wheelbarrow

If you have any of the items listed above, please drop them into the school office.

If any parents are tree surgeons or landscape gardeners ,we would also love to hear from you as we are hoping to source large logs to use as seating around our campfire, smaller logs and sticks  to build dens, make woodland art, practise sawing and other exciting activities.
