Outdoor education gives depth to the curriculum and makes an important contribution to students’ physical, personal and social education. Ofsted
Outdoor education contributes to our pupil's experience of a wondrous childhood.
Children at St Peter's will take part in experiences such as forest school, gardening, cycling, class trips, outdoor WOW days and camp - not to mention the chance to explore the school's own grounds, which boast a trim trail, tree house, secret garden and an allotment.
At St Peter's we are also really lucky to have Andy Wilson from Bristol Forest School who comes in to give fantastic Forest School lessons to some of our children. They get to explore our Secret garden and sometimes get taken off site to explore the amazing Leigh Woods forest school site too!
At the end of last year we had an amazing day learning outside of the classroom. We got to try some new things like den building, bowls and pond dipping, which were really exciting.
In Years 3, 4 and 5 children at our school have the opportunity to take part in level 1 or 2 Bikeability! During the sessions children jump on their bikes either on the playground or out on the road (Level 2) and learn how to ride safely. Letters will go out at the beginning of the year and there are limited places to sign up.
As well as having forest school opportunities at school, Ms Simon has also created a set of activities for everyone to do at home!
