Following the launch of our new outdoor learning programme the children prepared a report on the day which you can find by clicking the link below.
This was how their teacher summed up the experience.
‘Our outdoor learning day provided the opportunity to watch children thrive in a new and provoking learning environment. An environment where children had a say, children had a choice and children asked the questions! All children were supported to try something new and share their experience in their own way. Carefully tailored challenges and activities incited all children to move beyond their comfort zone and supported them to take steps, at their own pace, towards developing confidence and communication. Particular skills such as, perseverance when faced with a problem, confidence when trying something for the first time and valuing the ideas of others, are continuing to support all areas of our learning in class.’
