This term the children will continue learning outside. Old and warm clothes are a must for these sessions as Autumn and Winter will probably be cold and wet! Wellies are an easy way to prevent tedious shoe cleaning too!

Forest School Training at Chartham

We have teamed with Forest School Learning Initiative to host Level 3 Forest School Training. In May 2022 we welcomed 18 students to our site with Chirs Dee tutoring in week 1 of the face-to-face learning, and Robbie Dee and our own Forest School Leader delivering trainng on the practical days in week 2.

Our next courxe will be in May 2023 - If you want to become a Level 3 Forest School Leader with Chartham please register and interest with us below!

Face to Face Training

Forest School is one aspect of all the Outdoor Learning that goes on at Chartham. We have specific spaces, but these are shared with the whole school. Plus, the entire grounds are an amazing resource for extending Forest School and all aspects of the Outdoor Curriculum.
The children's hard work has earned Chartham a Silver Award from the RSPB for their Wild Challenge and a Gold Award from the Woodland Trust. We are working towards a Gold Award from the RSPB and a Platinum Award from the Woodland Trust - so watch this space!
