Yorkley Primary School

Woodland Walks


At Yorkley we recognise that the woodland and forests are an exciting place to take children on an adventure. There is so much for them to see, hear, touch and smell. 

Children immerse themselves fully in nature, they run, get messy, and have lots of fun. By allowing children to interact with natural environments they learn by getting involved, they will ask questions and experiment with ideas. Experiencing the outdoors offers authentic learning. Children will take risks, try and fail, and try again, they gain resilience and confidence.

We take full advantage of living in the beautiful Forest of Dean by taking the children on regular walks to the nearby woodland area. We will also offer for you, the parents/carers to join us and share the experience with your child. 

We can't wait to explore the outdoors with you all!
