Woodland School

Woodland School


Woodland School is a child centred approach to outdoor learning using the woods at the bottom of our school field as a base.


Lessons are  linked to the Science curriculum and incorporating, where appropriate, any links to other subject disciplines. 


Lessons are also closely linked to PSHE where citizenship skills, manners, turn-taking, corporation, etc. are also explored and developed.


Each session ends with a spell from the book ‘The Lost Words’ which is a collection of words relating to nature which are believed to be disappearing from the English Language. We have pledged that all Westwood children will not only be able to identify each of these animals, plants and birds but also share information about them.


Families are invited to join their children for Woodland School sessions during the year where they work and explore together.
