We Grow Together in Rainbow Wood
Forest School at Mitton Manor Primary School
In 2017, we opened up a Forest School area at the back of our school field. Since then, we have worked really hard to get Forest School sessions up and running at Mitton Manor. It has been such an exciting project so far and we're so excited to watch it grow.
Our New Logo and Name!
During the Summer term, the children were set the challenge of creating a new name and logo for our Forest School area. We had lots of amazing idea entries and couldn't choose just ONE idea, so we combined THREE! A huge well done and thank you to Toby S, Grace L and Freya J who had such lovely ideas which were used to create our new logo, name and moto - We Grow Together in Rainbow Wood.
Rainbow Wood was officially opened by Mr Sztymiak on Mitton Manor's 50th Birthday celebration day.
Thank You Mr Sztymiak!
A huge thank you to Mike Sztymiak for officially opening up our new area and for the very kind donation of our beautiful new hut! We hope that you like your gift.
Thank you so much to all of you who have signed up to our Big Dig! There is still time to sign up if you haven't done so already.
If you are planning on joining us, please read the following:
* please can I ask that you read through our Rainbow Wood Rules and Risk Assessment before coming along? I have added these documents to this web page - just scroll right to the bottom. I have saved them as PDFs, so hopefully they should open on your phone/tablet etc. When you arrive, you will be asked to sign in at the office and sign to indicate that you have read this document and take responsibility for your safety.
* if you come along, your children are allowed to come out of their class and join us! Please ensure that your children bring some old, warm clothes and wellies/boots in a named bag.
* if you have a spade or shovel at home, please can you bring it with you? We'd really appreciate it as we don't have many! Any gardening tools would also be greatly appreciated - we have a lot of digging and cutting back to do.
Thanks again. We are very excited!
