Outdoor Learning

Outdoor Learning at Cawston Grange Primary School

At Cawston Grange Primary School outdoor learning plays an important part in the curriculum. We aim to provide children with hands on experience through which they can develop their understanding of all of our school values. Outdoor learning is planned so that it supports and enhances the National Curriculum and provides depth, enrichment and an outdoor perspective for our children. Children have opportunities to explore and learn outdoors throughout the year, experiencing the seasons and changing nature around them. We recognise the importance of these experiences, especially in a world where children are spending less time outdoors. Learning outdoors is crucial to a child’s development, physical health, mental health, wellbeing and happiness. This is why we hold the strong believe that it should be embedded within our curriculum, whatever the weather!
