Forest School

Forest School is about exploring and experiencing the natural world through practical activities. The children go out in all weathers (except thunderstorms and high winds), all year round, exploring and learning from the seasons and environment changes.

Our Forest School site is an area of woodland within the school grounds which acts as an outdoor classroom where the children can explore, investigate and discover the natural environment. Forest School provides an excellent opportunity to bring learning to life, allowing the children to explore and learn in a constructive way. Forest Schools build on a child's innate motivation and positive attitude to learning, offering them the opportunities to take risks, make choices and initiate learning for themselves.

The Forest School learning environment provides opportunities for children to:

  • develop self-esteem and self-confidence
  • to form positive relationships with others
  • to develop a growing awareness of their emotional needs and the needs of others
  • to learn to cooperate and work with their peers and adults
  • to develop strategies in order to take risks within the boundaries of safety

The children enjoy music right from our reception class where they have musical instruments inside and outside and enjoy creating sounds and singing songs and rhymes. The older children enjoy music lessons both with class teachers and with specialist music teachers for guitar, clarinet, trumpet and flute. The school has invested in ten session long taster lessons for whole classes who have learnt the clarinet, trumpet and violin with the option of taking up the instrument afterwards. The school also has a strong tradition of promoting excellence in singing, performing regularly at public events such as Remembrance services, church functions, school productions, at local homes for the elderly, at the local Christmas fairs and more recently annually at Young Voices, a six thousand strong children choir performing to thousands of parents at the LG Arena in Birmingham.


The school boasts extensive sporting facilities including a large hall with sprung flooring , fully fitted with gym equipment, large playing fields marked for football, rounders and a large playground with multi sports markings, trim trail and adventure playground equipment. The school has many inter and intra sporting events such as PE lessons in athletics, gym, games, and dance as well as annual events such as Sports Day. The school is very active in the local sports network taking part in interschool orienteering, hockey, cricket and football leagues and workshops. Children have the opportunity to learn to swim using nearby swimming facilities and the children attend two residential trips at year 2 and Year 5/6 at Malvern Outdoor Centre and PGL centres at Ross on Wye. We are fortunate enough to run many after school activities such as football, rugby, dance, multi skills and running, helped by specialist sports coaches, teachers and parents. The school uses it new Sports Funding to provide specialist dance and drama teachers twice a week and multi skills coaching for all children once a week. The children also enjoy specialist teachers three lunchtimes a week running play activities at lunchtimes as well as after school. The children enjoy daily wake and shake session in the hall led by each class in turn dancing to the latest pop music. In light its extensive sports provision the school has recently been awarded the prestigious Sport Bronze Kitemark and is working towards Silver this term.


Playtime is fun and active at Stow Primary School. We have a large playground, well marked with games such as hopscotch, a trim trial and a multi purpose court. Nearby is a shed full of exciting play equipment chosen by the midday supervisors including swing balls, sand pit and sand toys, outdoor theatre for those who love acting, bats and balls, rackets and nets, parachutes, crickets sets, footballs and various fun things to throw such as tails and Frisbees. The children also enjoy specialist teachers three lunchtimes a week running play activities at lunchtimes as well as after school. Older children play happily alongside the younger ones and the aim is to be active and have fun!
