Giving children confidence to take risks
At St Margaret’s we believe that providing structured time for children to connect with nature and spend time outdoors creates a clear pathway for happy, resilient and confident children.
The Outdoor Education curriculum in Lower Junior balances opportunities where children are learning outside the classroom, enhancing their knowledge in subjects such as science, geography or reciting performance poetry in our woodlands. Along with weekly outdoor learning sessions, that are focused on Outdoor Learning.
“I think Outdoor Learning doesn't feel like a lesson, we have fun and learn at the same time”
Each week, the children actively participate in learning about the natural world around them. They look forward to being outside. The curriculum includes skills such as how to make a fire, create a shelter, gardening and orienteering and navigation.
