Outdoor School

"An innovative educational approach to outdoor play and learning.”

Our philosophy is to encourage and inspire individuals of any age through positive outdoor experiences.

By participating in engaging, motivating and achievable tasks and activities in a woodland environment each participant has an opportunity to develop intrinsic motivation, sound emotional and social skills. These, through self awareness can be developed to reach personal potential.

Outdoor School gives our children the opportunity to visit the same local woodland on a regular basis and through play, learn about the natural environment, how to handle risks and most importantly to use their own initiative to solve problems and co-operate with others. The programme runs throughout the year, going to the woods in all weathers. Children use full sized tools, play, learn boundaries of behaviour; both physical and social, establish and grow in confidence, self-esteem and become self-motivated.

Outdoor School will aim to develop:

  • Self Awareness
  • Self Regulation
  • Intrinsic motivation
  • Empathy
  • Good social communication skills
  • Independence
  • A positive mental attitude, self-esteem and confidence

Children, and more and more, adults need time to thoroughly explore their thoughts, feelings and relationships.
This time and reflective practice develops understanding of the world, the environment and everything within it through the use of emotions, imagination and senses.

Outdoor Schools September 2019

Our Learning objectives were:

  • To be able to explore the woodland safely and

  • To build a mini shelter

Everyone enjoyed a story before being introduced to our woodland friends Oscar and Isaac (teddy hedgehogs). The children shared a story about how Oscar and Isaac needed a new home. The children set to work making mini shelters using natural materials taking into account their location and the materials that would be suitable. We also thought about how woodland creatures make their own homes.

Each child were given their own "Wild Passport" which keeps a record of their skills and progress in Outdoor School learning.
