Welcome to Outdoor Learning

Welcome to our Outdoor Learning news page. This part of the website is dedicated to sharing news with you and keeping you informed of the brilliant things your child is experiencing with us.  To start this news thread, I wanted to take the opportunity to remind you of the kit your child needs for Outdoor Learning.

Outdoor Learning lessons take place all year, whatever the weather. There is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothes!

Outdoor Learning kit should be in school each week for the sessions. Children who don’t have the appropriate kit have a restricted choice of activities, especially when the weather is cold, wet or muddy. They may also get school uniform and shoes damaged, wet or muddy.

For children to get the most from their sessions, they should have:

  • A set of old clothes (including a jumper and/or a warm coat) that can get dirty and muddy.
  • A waterproof coat and trousers to go over these for when it is very wet.
  • Wellies or waterproof walking boots.

If you have any questions or would like to see our facilities, please get in touch with Mr Ball through the school office.

See the pictures below for examples of good and bad kit:

Good Outdoor Learning kit – waterproofs to cover uniform and keep the rain and mud off. Not so good if it’s very cold.

Good Outdoor Learning kit – old clothes to keep uniform clean. Waterproofs help if it’s very wet.

Bad Outdoor Learning kit – school uniform means choice of activities is limited.
