Year 3 are in full swing of their eagerly anticipated trip to Gorsefield this half term. The ‘Brave Badgers’ and ‘Fantastic Foxes’ have had a superb time during their first of three sessions of forest schools and have taken to the learning outdoors, surrounded by the magnificent towering trees at Gorsefield. We luckily managed to dodge the rabbit holes and stinging nettles, staying nice and dry under the canopy of the camp. Have a look at what we’ve been up to so far.
