Our 2020 Autumn Term Woodland sessions on the Ledston Estate near Leeds, proved to be very popular. Schools visited in their class bubbles and following COVID-Secure guidance, we were able to use the Education Centre for toilets and hand washing. As long a schools are open, and following government guidelines, we shall be running sessions at Ledston throughout 2021. We believe that the benefits for the children’s mental and physical health and well-being, outweigh the potential risks.  We are also running our Countryside Classroom and Let’s Learn Moor days.

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.”
