Parents’ Voice:

Woodland

Every Week throughout the school year, all 270 pupils at Pashley visit The Wildwood.

The Woodland is an ever changing outdoor classroom and is a refreshing change from the usual four walls.

These timetabled lessons follow the seasons and establish the children’s appreciation and natural curiosity for nature from an early age.

Activities in the woodland include treasure hunts, storytelling and drama, minibeast, bird, mammal and plant identification, den building, green woodworking, natural art projects and much more.

The children have helped to make The Wildwood an ideal habitat for our native birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates by planting new trees and flowers, creating log pile houses and putting up various bird and bat boxes.
By doing this they have developed a sense of respect, ownership and responsibility for the Wildwood at Pashley.
