Specialised Learning Experiences

Welly Boot Wednesday

As we're located within the grounds of Chalfont St Peter Infant School, we're lucky enough to use some of their facilities, including the Environmental area.

Each Wednesday we take our sessions outdoors. Rather than using classroom resources and equipment, children can use natural materials found in the woodland and enjoy activities such as collecting sticks and leaves, tying knots, making dens,  using twigs to write in the mud and climbing on logs.

Our Welly Boot Wednesday sessions can help children to develop:

  • self-awareness

  • motivation

  • social and communication skills

  • independence

  • self-esteem and confidence

  • physical skills including the development of both gross and fine motor skills

  • problem solving and risk taking

  • concentration

  • knowledge and understanding of the world around them.

Forest Tribe Friends

Forest School Leader, Melanie visits the Nursery fortnightly to take our outdoor learning up a level. The children learn about fire safety (and also use it for popocorn, marshmallows, crumpets and more!), build dens, scramble, climb with rope and much more. Forest Tribe Friends sessions are themed around topics such as the seasons and incorporate a craft too.

Melanie also runs stay and play sessions each Friday in Chalfont St Giles and offers some holiday clubs too. Click here for more information.

Cooking helps children to learn and practice some basic math concepts and build language skills whilst also improving Fine Motor Skills and hand eye co-ordination.

The experience of creating something to eat  can help build their self-confidence and lay the foundation for healthy eating habits.

Physical Education


The benefits of exercise in the Early years  helps children to maintain a healthy weight, evidence suggests that being physically active in the early years can also:

  • support brain development

  • help develop social skills and emotional wellbeing

  • enhance bone health, muscular development and co-ordination

  • gives children the skills and confidence they need to continue an active lifestyle into childhood and beyond.

  • Develop spatial awareness and care to others.

We offer a varied programme of PE and are lucky to be able use the school hall for Gym apparatus sessions and yoga.


 Outside we have great fun with the parachute, teach ball and hoop skills and have many tricycles for the children to use.
