At Cotton End Forest School, we are committed to providing a creative curriculum which is based on ‘Learning Beyond the Classroom’. This approach is hands-on, broad and balanced, and provides our pupils with opportunities to gain essential knowledge, skills and understanding. We intend that all children should enjoy their learning, achieve their potential and become independent life-long learners.
Through a creative, holistic, outdoor-focused approach, we will aim high, striving for every child to achieve highly, both academically and socially. Through learning opportunities in the classroom and beyond, including Forest School, our curriculum will nurture curious minds, stretch imaginations and provide opportunities for every child to become leaders in their own right. We believe that education takes place beyond the walls of the classroom, and we utilise our outdoor space to promote a fully inclusive environment where children feel safe and confident to try new things.
Welcome to Kingfishers!
Kingfishers is our year 3 class, taught by Miss Hudson and we are based in the Riverbank pavilion.
We enjoy a creative approach to the curriculum where all of the children’s needs are catered for. Our National Curriculum subjects are linked to one area of study. This is closely linked to Forest School and Outdoor Learning sessions.
In Kingfishers class children continue to develop the skill of working independently and children are encouraged to find things out for themselves and to challenge and extend their ideas.
The children learn through high quality classroom based activities. We link our learning objectives to our termly themes and the children immerse themselves in their learning.
Our Summer term topic is ‘Healthy Me’. This topic covers all areas of keeping healthy. We will study exercise, healthy eating, personal hygiene and mental health.
