Children get to know the great outdoors
SCHOOL pupils spruced up their site with some greenery.
Children from St George’s Church of England Infant School, in White Lion Road, Amersham, planted new trees to develop their forest school site.
The planting session was part of the school’s forest school programme where children explore their outside environment.
Head teacher Toby Long said: “Forest school provides our children with the opportunity to spend time getting closer to nature and these trees will, in time, add greatly to that experience.
“It encourages children to be inquisitive, question their decisions and manage their own risk – all skills we believe to be important in developing confident, rounded young people.” BUDDING historians at a school took part in a contest to test their knowledge.
Year five girls at Gayhurst School went along to the Historian of the Year competition at Wycombe Abbey on Monday, November 10, which was attended by 120 pupils.
The team received commendations for their work, with Lily Barker, nine, being announced as the overall winner.
