Learning Outside the Classroom

Learning Outside the Classroom
 
We believe outdoor learning can really enhance the educational experiences of all children. Our whole curriculum embraces this approach to learning no matter what year group your child may be in. However, in Early Years it really is at the core of much of the learning.
 
We have a significant outdoor space that is well resourced. Within the unit's outdoor area we have an allotment area with a greenhouse; climbing equipment and slide; sandpit; mud kitchen; log circle; role play dens; large play toys; construction area and water play. Within the wider school grounds we also have a cycle track and Balance Bikes to help develop your child's gross motor skills as well as a Forest School area.
 
Forest School
 
All year groups access Forest School outdoor learning. Reception will access a dedicated Forest School session within their week. However, even without a dedicated session, children in Early Years will spend at least part of every day outside.
