Outdoor Learning

Space to explore

Being outdoors is an integral part of the children’s day in The Nursery.

We believe that connecting with nature is a key contributing factor in nurturing happy, resilient and confident children.

The children enjoy being outdoors as much as possible. Our focused outdoor curriculum provides opportunities to teach children about different animal tracks, to creating a shelter for a teddy, as well as collecting the eggs from our school hens.

“Mrs Gray & the big children fed the hens, I saw them eat broccoli, I like the hens”

Alongside Outdoor Learning, the children also enjoy learning outdoors, where our curriculum extends beyond the classroom walls.

Playing outdoors is an important aspect of supporting children’s physical, academic and emotional development. The children in the Nursery at St Margaret’s can be found outside whatever the weather.
