Outdoor learning experiences are often remembered for a lifetime. These are often the lessons which children remember well into adulthood. Integrating learning and outdoor experiences, whether in the immediate grounds or adventures further afield, LOtC provides relevance and depth to the curriculum in ways that are difficult to achieve within the four walls of the classroom.
Learning outdoors can be enjoyable, creative, challenging and adventurous and helps children and young people learn by experience and grow as confident and responsible citizens who value and appreciate the spectacular landscapes, natural heritage and culture.
Opportunities for outdoor learning exist within and across all curriculum areas. The children have been asked their views on LOtC and how it could help them understand their topics further. Garlinge is striving to improve our learning and experiences by using our amazing grounds and local facilities as regularly as we can.
Nursery planted six potatoes and look what happened! The children were over the moon to see how they had grown! What a good haul!
