At Lewis Street we engage in outdoor learning so our children grow and develop diverse skills in a new environment. Our school staff take selected pupils on a weekly basis to a local woodland to take part in the programme.
Year 3 children may participate in Wild Tribe, a small outdoor, therapeutic and developmental intervention.
The programme develops children’s sense of personal safety, security and self confidence. The programme also concentrates on developing respect for self, others and the environment through an understanding of children’s responsibilities to others and the world around us.
Year 5 participate in Forest Crew, where children undertake group challenges and tasks.
Forest Crew encourages children to think about their relationships and develops important social skills, team working and problem solving. These skills can then be transferred back into everyday lives and the classroom.
