We strongly believe that all children benefit from accessing the outdoors every day, whatever the weather! Apart from fresh air and expending excess energy, this experience offers numerous opportunities for learning and development with sometimes different equipment and even more space to explore.
Children are encouraged to use this time and space imaginatively often working co-operatively in activities and games, learning to play their part as an integral member of a team.
We have extended our outdoors programme to include our Forest School experience where, once weekly children are taken by minibus in groups to ‘our’ forest. Staff have undertaken Forest training to help plan activities to offer the children time and space to
explore the natural world and provide endless learning opportunities and fun whilst extending their knowledge and understanding of the world.
