Outdoor Learning

It makes everyone feel so much better when the sun shines and the temperature rises.

The children are happy, more focused in the classroom and enjoy the company of their friends. The variety in Units of Inquiry, visits, activities, and opportunities for the children is impressive. This week alone we have had a visit from the Police for a safety talk, been on the tram to Cleveleys to conduct a survey, been pond dipping and the children have been handling a variety of small creatures and animals.

The highlight of this half term is our outdoor education programme for all our children from Nursery through to Year 6, ranging from activities in the Secret Garden and Beach School to a trip to Winmarleigh or canoeing in the Lake District. Active learning, pushing the comfort zone and trying new skills are invaluable for boosting self-confidence and self-esteem, creating a positive attitude and an awareness of other children’s needs and contributions to others. The children return from these days full of enthusiasm, excitement and strengthened friendships.
