Forest School at Great Linford
At our school we believe that outdoor learning is an important part of a child's development. Forest School is an inspirational process, that offers ALL learners regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland or natural environment with trees. Forest School is a specialised learning approach that sits within and compliments the wider context of outdoor and woodland education.
Children throughout the school are able to access the outdoor learning and develop confidence and a greater understanding of the natural environment around them. Throughout their sessions, children also access the PE curriculum and learn about the importance of active and healthy lifestyles.

How Clean is our Air?
Miss Creed's class are taking part in an important bit of scientific research to help Friends of the Earth measure air pollution around schools in the UK. The children have fitted special test tubes around the school that will measure substances such as carbon dioxide. Our test tubes will be sent in to Friends of the Earth before the Summer holidays. We hope that with all the lovely trees growing around our school that we have good clean air to breathe!
