Therapy Ponies at Doubletrees!

Family Nest therapy ponies coming in to school to visit our learners!

We are delighted to let you know that Family Nest Therapy CIC will be coming in to Doubletrees starting from the 13th October to visit our learners. Therapy ponies are widely known to have a calming, sensory and therapeutic effect on children. Each pony is carefully selected for its temperament and they provide fun and cuddles to those who would not usually be able to interact with horses.  Jess from Family Nest, visited the school last week to show our learners pictures of the ponies and showed us all how to use brushes, lead reins and bridles to prepare us for their visit.  The ponies will be in a fenced off area at the front of the school and classes will be able to visit for a cuddle if they wish.  Class schedule as follows - 

13.10.21 - Rowan, Apple and Redwood - ** Please see our photo's of the first session in our News and Events section under the Whole School Gallery tab**

10.11.21 - Oak, Cedar, Maple and Orchard ** Subject to date change due to school photographs on this date**

02.12.21 - Willow, Cherry and Elm
