Thurlstone Primary School - Putting Learning at the Heart of the Community

Our Forest Schools Plan

We’re proud of our great outdoors! We have so much space out there and the children really enjoy learning and discovering in the fresh air whatever the weather!

Our pond, playground and Nature Garden are used for Golden Time activities, where children have great fun producing large, outdoor art and studying mini-beasts first hand.

With the help of caring and supportive parents and the Penistone Tidy Team, we are well on our way to developing a wonderful new outdoor area which we hope will provide excelent opportunities for our children to learn and explore the great outdoors as well as provide habitats for lots of species of wildlife.

Over the coming months we’re planning to extend our use of the grounds further and participate in the Forest Schools scheme. We’ll announce more in the near future (keep an eye on the Shuttle!) but in the meantime you can read more about the Forest Schools scheme here.
