Dens, crafts and collaboration for our intrepid Woodland Explorers

Girls across Junior School have been enjoying Woodland Explorer time, learning a wide range of skills in the fresh air.

For our Reception pupils, time spent outside in their weekly Woodland Explorer sessions are always a highlight. This term we have been playing games and going on adventures which connect to our literacy learning and Book of the Week - and what better story to bring to life than 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt'? The girls love being in outside, having fun, whatever the weather. We are relieved to report, no real life bears have been sighted in the grounds to date.

In Year 2, as the weather turns to autumn, girls have been working together to build cosy shelters to keep out the wind and rain. We have also been developing creative talents in our 'crafting circle' taking inspiration from our surroundings to make a range of natural decorations and a kite.

Pupils have also been keen to explore the hidden wildlife in our Junior School gardens, and equipped with magnifying glasses and identification kits, they have been busy spotting different minibeasts and learning about their natural habitats.

All Year groups in Junior School enjoy regular Woodland Explorer lessons as part of our broad and creative curriculum.
