Learning Outside the Classroom

Learning Outside the Classroom is curriculum linked and pre-planned based upon the national curriculum units being covered at the time. Lessons such as Science, DT and Art lend themselves really well to outdoor learning, where the national curriculum objectives can be taught in a creative way outside. All subjects can be taught using the outdoors.

Children in the Early Years experience outdoor learning daily as part of their continuous provision.

Children in Years 1 and 2 have a two-hour outdoor learning lesson every fortnight.

Children in Years 3 and 4 have a one-hour outdoor learning lesson every week.

Outdoor learning takes place all year round, whatever the weather - children are required to bring in their own clothes, waterproofs and wellies/walking boots for their weekly sessions.
