Early Years: Outdoor Learning

Outdoor Learning gives children the opportunity explore the world in different ways, through their senses and through physical activity. There are so many benefits to learning outside of the classroom including: developing social skills as children work together; encouraging independence as children have space to explore and make their own creative choices; encouraging a more active lifestyle.

Our Early Years pupils have enjoyed exploring the outside learning environment. They have been very busy building, constructing, painting, making, collaging and colour mixing. The children have used a variety of messy play ingredients to make their own potions, just like in the story Room on the Broom. They particularly enjoyed colour mixing in shaving foam and discovering what happens when they mix different colours together.
