Meet Claire! Halberton Primary have had a very busy term so far!

Meet Claire!

Claire has been working for Primary Forest School for 15 months, she has a wealth of forest school knowledge and she loves that Forest School promotes learning through exploration and wonder. It provides a space for children to breathe, take risk, problem solve and grow in confidence. She loves that every day is a learning day as much for her as it is the children!

"Well, what a fantastic start to the 2023 Academic year. The sun shone and we enjoyed a few sessions of warmth! It has now definitely turned into Autumn and we need to think about bringing more layers to school for our forest school sessions. Waterproof coats, waterproof trousers & wellies are essential but as the temperature drops, I would suggest we need to think about more layers too. I always have a hat, snood/buff, long sleeved thermal top, fleece on as well as the usual warm trousers and 2 layers of top.

SO what have we been up too?:

Willow Class had a great half explored colours in Nature, den building and minibeast hunting as well as fire technics. 

One of my favourite lessons has been finding a slow worm during our minibeast lesson. Lots of children enjoyed being close up and personal with insects that they had not seen before. 

Another highlight was making fire structures, sadly inside, but the class got create making their own pizza wraps, cooking them in the oven and role playing what we could have done outside if we had a fire. They then created fire pictures with saftety rules.

This next term is over to Acorns for more minibeast hunting, finding ways to look after the birds in the winter months, team work building dens as well as enjoying some festive winter crafts and cinnamon apples by the fire."

Our After School Club runs on a Tuesday from 3:30-4:30pm!

We develop our forest skills with nature crafts, tools work, campfires, free exploring…
