Outdoor Learning

Outdoor Learning is extremely important to us. We can see how all our pupils benefit socially, emotionally and academically from learning outdoors so we strive to take the curriculum into the open whenever we can. Our facilities for outdoor learning are excellent, dynamic and our commitment to their continual development is a priority.

 As well as access to our beautiful grounds, trim trail, orchard, vegetable beds and pond area Early Years and Key Stage One pupils enjoy forest school, water play, sand play, a variety of bikes, a garage and a play house.

The children have access to the mud kitchen where, through their play, they develop literacy, numeracy, social and physical skills.

Key Stage Two children also access the curriculum through the outdoors whenever they can take art, geography, science, literacy and numeracy outside.

The Forest school areas have cob ovens for cooking and fire pits to keep warm and toasty as well as den building spaces for imaginative play.

 




News Flash: There will be a road closure between Stoke Sub Hamdon and Norton from 7am on Monday 18th Nov until Friday 22nd Nov. Access to the school by car will be from the Norton direction.
