Outdoor Learning can be used to support the teaching of all curriculum subjects as well as offering opportunities for children to learn transferrable skills such as communication, problem-solving, initiative and risk-taking. It can also be used to build on relational development where children can develop their leadership and teamwork skills.
Outdoor Learning at
Hextable Primary School
At Hextable Primary School we aim to enable our children to use the outdoors as a motivating and inspiring learning environment wherever possible as it provides a stimulating and engaging context. We believe that taking learning outside is excellent for promoting confidence, social skills, motivation and perseverance; skills that can be used in the classroom and other settings.
We are fortunate enough to have amazing spaces that lend themselves to forest school activities. Reception children attend Forest School on a weekly basis, and children in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 are able to participate in after-school clubs that offer Forest School sessions.
