Outdoor Learning is very important to us, and we take full advantage of our beautiful rural setting. We have lovely woodlands on our doorstep, and use these every week for Forest School Activities. There is strong evidence that outdoor learning can have positive benefits for children in all of the four capacities, for example:
- Successful Learners- developing greater knowledge and enthusiasm for learning.
- Confident Individuals- with enhanced self esteem
- Responsible Citizens- with respect for others and the environment
- Effective Contributors- developing skills in communication and teamwork
Halloween Forest School!
Our pupils are all hugely motivated by their outdoor learning experiences, and well used to going out, properly ‘suited and booted’ in all weathers. This session we have been developing this area of our curriculum further, incorporating use of our new ipads into these learning experiences, as a means of recording and sharing our learning.
