Outdoor Learning

Learning need not take place solely within educational buildings. Outdoor time often provides the most memorable learning experiences and helps children to make sense of the world around them by putting their learning into a meaningful context. It has so many benefits such as, improved time focus on activities and more concentration, greater social skills, involvement and initiative.

We believe that every child should experience the world beyond the classroom as an essential part of learning and personal development and has massive potential for providing learning opportunities.

Outdoor learning experiences are often remembered for a lifetime. Integrating learning and outdoor experiences, whether through play in the immediate grounds or adventures further afield, provides relevance and depth to the curriculum in ways that are difficult to achieve indoors. Learning outdoors can be enjoyable, creative, challenging and adventurous and helps children learn by experience and grow as confident and responsible citizens who value and appreciate the natural environment.
