We enjoy learning outside the class room at All Saints. With a large school field, story circle, and two forest areas with fire pits, log stores and dig sites we use the outdoors to support and apply our learning. Whether we are taking part in a scavenger hunt, orienteering or playing team building games we use the outdoor space well. Bringing learning alive and making connections whether we are having a 'Roman Day', building a Saxon Settlement, recreating The Great Fire of London or having a debate; sharing stories or cooking on the camp fire we are making learning memorable and having fun.
Outdoor learning can be done on our school site, off site or at home. It helps us to recall and apply learning, build relationships and develop our character education. All staff are able to deliver outdoor learning and Mr. McGarvey- our outdoor learning practitioner is also trained in delivering the Forest School programme and The John Muir Award.
We are currently in the process of applying for the Learning Outside the Classroom Award.
