Seething and Mundham Primary School, in Brooke Road, welcomed Sapientia Academy Trust CEO Jonathan Taylor and Forest School leader Sonja Seaton to the exiting unveiling.

Forest School is a specialised learning approach that offers pupils regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland or natural environment with trees.

Conservationist Mark Cocker attended the ceremony and said: “Forest School embraces all forms of life and teaches pupils practical skills, self-confidence and respect.”

Pupils enjoyed a variety of new activities including owl pellet dissection; making pine-cone animals; making magnetic fishing rods and using them to ‘catch’ fish; examining skulls and predicting which animals they came from; and also looking for images of a green man or green lady in the foliage.
