We have ‘Outward Bound Days’ where we discover the hills and fields in the surrounding area and attend our Forest school. We may also visit the beach or go on long walks. We pride ourselves on our outdoor experiences and have our own forest school.
What is so special about our Outward Bound days is that the children get to explore their outdoor environment, become familiar with nature and use natural resources. Outdoor learning and Forest schools come from the Scandinavian education system and is about children building self esteem and independence through exploring and experiencing the natural world. We explore a mixture of skills such as team building activities of building shelters, knot tying, hunting for mini beasts, making mud sculptures and using tools.
