Outdoor learning

As a school, we are working together to achieve The Outdoor Learning Award.

We want children to grow in confidence and gain skills through learning outside. There are so many benefits of learning outdoors such as improved self-esteem, enriched language and a more rounded positive attitude to learning. 

 

We will be working toward 8 benchmarks over the coming months including promoting positive attitudes, parent engagement, regular learning across the curriculum and using our outdoor area safely and confidently.  

Forest Rangers

A team of committed, driven children work with Mrs Steadman and Mrs Carlyon every Thursday after school to gather evidence and experiences linking directly to the benchmarks. They discussed, designed and made a whole school mission statement which is displayed in every classroom and around school. 

Enjoy having a look at the variety of ways we learn outdoors throughout the whole school, across all areas of the curriculum.
