Today the whole school had the opportunity to meet Solo, a Shetland pony from Berryfields. Over the year Robins class will be working with Solo and the other equines from Berryfields, taking part in Equine Facilitated Learning. Children will develop a wide range of skills through the programme including:
• Increased self-awareness and self confidence
• Support emotional and behavioural growth
• Support Social and Emotional Learning Competencies
• Improved educational outcomes
• Personal self-development
• Improved communication skills and teamwork skills
Additionally Robins class will develop the skills to participate in a competitive sport-Equine Agility.
