Our Spring/Summer term Woodland sessions on the Ledston Estate near Leeds, have been very popular and we are fully booked. Schools visit in their class bubbles and following COVID-Secure guidance, we are able to use the Education Centre for toilets and hand washing. Our Countryside Classroom Days and Let’s Learn Moor Days are also fully booked. As long a schools are open, and following government guidelines, we shall be running our outdoor eventsthroughout 2021. We believe that the benefits for the children’s mental and physical health and well-being, outweigh the potential risks.
“The children were fully engaged throughout each activity. The information, vocabulary and learning activities all related to our Year 4 expectations. The visit was run to a good time scale and followed Covid-19 guidelines; making all children and staff feel safe at all times.”
