Outdoor Learning

Welcome to our Outdoor Learning Page.

Here at Hartlebury Church of England (Voluntary Controlled) Primary School, we believe outdoor learning is an essential part to the children’s learning and development.

We go out on the field, playing at breaktimes and lunchtimes and often take our learning outside during lesson time. Forest School is an extremely important part of our curriculum and the children visit this area at least once a week to take full advantage of our wonderful facility.

We have recently improved our Forest School area using a grant, for which we are very grateful, enabling us to provide high quality teaching and learning, that is fun and engaging for our children

Mrs Wilton and Mrs Hall lead our Forest School outdoor learning throughout the school and it is the highlight of most children’s week! We have some fantastic volunteers who offer support during our Forest School lessons. We welcome any one that would like to volunteer for a morning in Forest School to help support this valuable outdoor learning experience! If you feel you can help please contact the school office on office@hartlebury.worcs.sch.uk

Toddler Forest School starting March 2022!


From March 2022 we are running Toddler Forest School sessions at Hartlebury CofE Primary School.  All toddlers are welcome to join us (with their parent/carer) for a fun filled afternoon in our Forest School supported by our experienced leaders.

Come and join us every other Friday and develop a love of the outdoors!

Please share our poster far and wide so we can provide these sessions to our local community and beyond.

We will also be sharing this amazing opportunity on our school Facebook page so please share through your social media also!

If you or anyone you know are interested in booking a space, call 01299 250312 or email office@hartlebury.worcs.sch.uk for further details.

We are very excited about developing forest school opportunities for the best possible future of our school!

Kidderminster Shuttle – Toddler Forest School

We are very proud to be able to offer this wonderful Educational Service to our families and the wider Community.

In forest school on Monday 21st March 2022, Year 4 had a team work exercise to build a Viking Long Ship.

The children designed, built and crewed the ship to invade Lindisfarne in 793 AD.

They used Forest School resources and started to use their growing knowledge of knots to create the mast and sail.

A special mention to Zac who was amazingly resourceful using tyres as shields. He implemented the mast idea too!

Super work Year 4!
