Forest School

Here at Littlegarth we encourage our children to take full advantage of the school’s setting on the Essex/Suffolk border in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Our Forest School is an opportunity for children to explore the our magnificent Forest School area, learn through play and develop new skills.

Outside exploits have included building dens, digging clay mines, building a campfire and creating museums for natural treasures found in the outdoors. Children have made map-sticks, elder bead jewellery and whittled wands pencils and flag poles. Our innovative commitment to learning experience of our children has made us one of the leading independent primary schools in Colchester.
