Learning Outside the Classroom
In Year 6, we really recognise the value of the outdoor environment and it's capacity to engage, inspire, motivate, develop and empower our children to become life long learners. We love to use the outdoor environment as a second classroom and have found that a number of key skills can be acquired: resilience, independence, critical thinking, perseverence and problem solving.
