Learning outside the classroom
Learning outside the classroom is a tool for teaching and learning which has been proven to raise attainment and achieves, improve behaviour, and improve the engagement of all groups of pupils, including those who are hard to engage inside the classroom environment.
Learning outdoors takes place across all subjects including Maths, Literacy, Science, History, Geography and RE (Environment). During planning for all subjects, teachers actively look for opportunities to bring the learning outside - using creative techniques to bring the subject to life using the opportunity that the great outdoors provides. We are very lucky in that we have a wide range of different outdoor environments that we can use, so children can have the most appropriate and memorable experiences possible.
It is about getting children out and about, providing them with challenging, exciting, and different experiences to help them learn.
