Forest schools at St. Edward’s Catholic Primary School
At St Edward’s Primary in Sheerness, pupils are fortunate to have a wonderful woodland on the school site. The school has developed part of the area so that it can support its pupils to develop their emotional resilience through lunchtime activities. Being named ‘Wonder Wood’ by the school council, this area will also be used as an outdoor classroom to teach Science, Geography, and a range of other subjects.
The project was run alongside Stanford Hill Prison who drew upon talented carpenters who designed and created bespoke musical instruments, bird houses, bug hotels and minibeast homes, windchimes, fairy doors, chalkboards, totem poles and wonderful seating areas. Take a look at some of the incredible features below!
