Our outdoor environment has massive potential for providing learning opportunities. We are extremely fortunate to be set in large grounds and surrounded by an environment rich in opportunities and we make full use of our local area, to enhance our educational provision. To enhance this further, our oldest and youngest pupils, Finlay and Arthur officially opened our new outdoor classroom today. Do take the time to walk down and see it for yourself!
Our new outdoor classroom provides our children with an excellent outdoor learning base; it provides shelter and shade from all elements. We are now able to take the children outside to learn, away from the constraints of the indoor classroom.
As you will have seen our playgrounds have also been transformed. The markings include a range of games the children can play and also curriculum resources linked to Maths and English which can be used to support learning. I am sure you will agree they have really brightened up our playgrounds and I know the children have enjoyed using them.
For this project, we worked with Pentagon Play who design and install outdoor learning environments for schools and nurseries. You can visit their website here – www.pentagonplay.co.uk
