Outdoor Education

Outdoor education has become a large part of children's education in recent years.

Outdoor education can involve working with others, carrying out investigations, learning about the local area and community and going on school trips.

Outdoor learning takes place throughout school, however it can mainly be observed in Reception and Key Stage 1.

Reception have their own outdoor area where the children can access a range of outdoor equipment. They go on a 'welly walk' every Wednesday through our school wooded area and carry out lots of exciting activities. Key Stage 1 may use the outdoor area for a range of lessons such as Geography, measuring in Mathematics or collecting minibeasts for Science.

Children also enjoy looking after our outdoor environment and we have run clubs such as gardening clubs and 'Muddy Buddies' where children help to look after the outdoor areas around school.
