We believe that outdoor learning is a crucial part of a child's learning journey. By connecting with nature and the outdoors, children are able to apply what they have learned to the real world. Outdoor Learning also gives children a different learning environment and an opportunity to use all of their senses. In EYFS, we try to get outside as much as possible no matter the weather!
Why is outdoor learning important?
Supports the development of healthy and active lifestyles;
Offers children opportunities for physical activity, freedom and movement;
Promotes a sense of confidence and well-being;
Provides opportunities for developing harmonious relationships with others, through negotiation, taking turns and cooperation;
Supports those children who learn best through activity or movement;
