Welcome to The Wishing Wood
We head to the woodlands every Friday afternoon. Each week, two classes make use of this amazing space for all sorts of activities, from science to art, poetry to maths and geography to PE. We are so lucky to use this space to enhance our learning. This is such a key part of what we do here at Brooke, in working to create the school that we would have wanted to go to, and we know how lucky we are as staff, and our children are to be able to make use of such a great space.
Just outside the village, set back from the Shotesham road lies our Wishing Wood. It is bordered by fields on all 4 sides and has no public rights of way to disturb its tranquility. When we arrive to visit the site, we often find hares, deer and pheasants running free.
The Wishing Wood is part of William and Clare Turner’s farmland and they have, very generously, given us permission to use them throughout the year to enhance the curriculum.
