Outdoor Learning

Outdoor learning is integral to our whole school curriculum.

During 2018-2019 our KS2 children are walking Hadrian’s wall, from Bowness-on-Solway to Wallsend as a core part of their learning. Our younger children are taking part in some of the walk and are attending Forest School to enhance their understanding of the natural world.

We are working closely with Cumbria Outdoors and with The Learning Forest to deliver these exciting learning opportunities.

Forest School

We all like it because ...

  • Maggie - We have lots of games and I like the tyre swing.
  • Jessica - There are lots of things to learn and Mrs Armstrong is a good forest school teacher.
  • Lily - I like roasting marshmallows.
  • Poppy - It's lots of fun!
  • Oliver - I get to climb in the tree and we play games where we can run around. We also play hide and seek in the trees and Mrs Armstrong is a very good teacher.
