The Stick Man by Julia Donaldson
Stick Man lives in the family tree with his Stick Lady Love and their Stick Children Three.
After going for a jog one morning, Stick Man encounters a bounding dog, who just wants to play fetch. This sparks a series of unfortunate adventures, which lead him far from home. As the seasons pass Stick Man meets a surprising friend who might just be able to help him get home. Will he get back to the family tree for Christmas?
Stick Man's story is a tale of adventure, courage and the wonderful bond of family.

Hello and welcome to our Forest School page.
The History of Forest School
Forest School has been based on a rich heritage of outdoor learning dating back to the 19th century across Scandinavia. In 1993 their way of learning was observed by Nursery Nurses from Bridgewater College and they found that the childrens learning mainly took place in the outdoor environment, meaning it was child led and play based. The ethos and learning approach of Forest School was seen as something that built on the UK outdoor heritage.
The definition of Forest School 2002 is: " An inspirational process that offers children, young people and adults regular opportunities to achieve, develop confidence and self-esteem through hands on learning experiences in a local woodland environment."
At Graig-y-Rhacca school we are very fortunate to have fabulous grounds and surrounding woodland areas that we use for Forest School. Each class will have six weekly sessions throughout the year enabling your child/children to experience and have the freedom of outdoor play, where they can use nature, space and light to help them develop mutual respect for their surroundings and their community. In addition, through developing their practical skills they develop their own self-belief and confidence. These varied sessions in natural surroundings stimulates their imagination, encourages creativity and builds both fine and gross motor skills.
