We have a small wildlife area at the back of our school. The area was created to encourage birds, bees and other insects to live and enjoy it here. The wildlife area even has a pond which is home to tadpoles, frogs and other pond life creatures.
We are very fortunate to have our own woodland area at the bottom of our school field. We use the woodland area for our outdoor learning and Forest School sessions.
We have a secure playground in front of our school which we use for play times and outdoor learning. We have a shed outside, where we keep our outdoor games. We also have benches and a small climbing wall and netball nets.
On our school field we have a wooden outdoor classroom which we use when we are learning outdoors. We often use the classroom for bird watching and investigating our natural area.
We are fortunate to have our school field next to our school. We use the field in the warmer months to play at break times. The field has a trim trail, a willow tunnel and shed with outdoor equipment in. We also use the school field for sports day.
Class 1 outdoor area
Class 1 have their own secure outdoor area attached to the classroom. Children can enter through the French doors. Here they will find lots of things set up to encourage learning through discovery, exploring and creating.
We have two classes at Kettlewell Primary. Class 1 and Class 2.
Our library is open for children to come and browse every day. The library houses a range of books and has been refurbished in recent years.
Our school hall is a busy hive of activity and is used throughout the day for learning, collective worship, P.E., dinners and school productions.
Sports Hall and Swimming Pool
In Year 3, children are taken to Upper Wharfedale School to use their swimming pool and sports hall once a week where they enjoy swimming and PE lessons.
Our school dinners are all home made on site by Mrs Swale, using healthy ingredients and are always popular with both the children and staff.
