Dear Britannia Families,


 The Summer holidays are nearly upon us and we are all hoping the British weather will do us proud with long sunny days. But whatever the weather brings I am inviting you to take on a challenge that will encourage us to be outside as much as possible.


  Take a look at the 100 Fun Outdoor Activity Ideas and choose a couple for each day or set yourself a target number to complete by September the 1st. All ideas are fun and most require very little resources. (Some ideas may be more seasonal dependent than others but you can always make adaptations.) The activities will encourage observations of our natural environment, play built around natural resources, help reduce that ever so addictive screen time and boost wellbeing. Hopefully creating new habits that will continue long after the Summer holidays have ended.


  To keep track of each activity achieved you could keep a diary or make a book. What a great way to capture these special family moments! There will also be Phase Group Padlets available to share photos if you so wish. Links to the Padlets will follow. Remember ONLY Britannia school parents will have access to them but ALL parents within your phase group will be able to see the photos and notes published. Therefore, only include activities and achievements with your children’s faces if you feel comfortable with this.

  There will be certificates for taking part and prizes for families who achieved the most, all of which will be presented in the Autumn term.

        I look forward to sharing all your achievements.

               Good luck and have FUN!


                        Mrs Saxton


P.S. Feel free to add your own ideas for outdoor activities and complete them too.

              KS2 may want to increase the level of challenge.



At Britannia, Forest School is a unique educational experience and process that offers children the opportunity to succeed and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland environment.

Our children engage in motivating and achievable tasks and activities throughout the year and in almost all weathers. Pupils work with tools, play, learn boundaries of behaviour (both physical and social), grow in confidence, self- esteem and motivation whilst developing an understanding of the natural world. At Britannia, we have a designated site called ‘The Wonder Wood’ situated at the end of the school field.
