Outdoor learning provides additional opportunities for children across the school to take their learning outside of the classroom and apply new skills. The children love learning outside and most days you will see children walking across the playground to take part in a range of activities.
In Early Years and Key Stage 1 children enjoy weekly sessions in our school garden, Mrs Armstrong is trained as a Forest Schools Leader and she takes a leading role in planning the outdoor curriculum. Children enjoy building dens under the trees in our garden, making habitats to encourage wildlife to live in the area and even sometimes experiencing a camp fire along with hot chocolate and marshmallows.
In Year 6 children have the opportunity to join a trip to Arthog, in North Wales. Here they experience a range of activities including rock climbing and canoeing. The children love getting the chance to stay away from home and develop their independence and resilience by rising to the challenges they encounter. Every year the children return to school full of stories about the fun they have had and that little bit more grown up.
