Learning Outside the Classroom
At St. Paul's we value the importance of learning outside the classroom and in our Forest School area. We have amazing grounds here at our school and we regularly take learning outside and engage in activities linked to a whole range of subjects. Learning outdoors has so many benefits, it helps us to learn to be responsible and interact positively with the outdoor environment. It supports the development of social skills, independence, exploration, risk taking and problem solving.
On a Friday we head outside for Forest Friday time. On this day different classes take their learning outdoors. We also regularly participate in global Outdoor Classroom Day which inspires and celebrates outdoor play and learning.
Don't forget to get outside as much as you can. Go for daily walks or exercise. When out and about take a look at nature and enjoy the changes that happen continually.
