Outdoor Learning

At St. Matthew’s we believe that outdoor learning should offer opportunities which are unique to outdoors, such as, throwing, catching and running, being noisy and adventurous, exploring nature and the seasons, growing and digging, making mud pies and an opportunity to construct by making dens and explore water on a much larger scale than can be accommodated indoors. Using the real world and natural materials wherever possible we aim to enable the children to work collaboratively, cooperate, explore, design, take risks and problem solve using the outdoors as a stimulus. We believe by taking learning outdoors we give children the opportunity to learn using a variety of open ended resources in an ever changing environment where the colours, temperature, textures, sounds and wildlife within their outdoor classroom change daily, creating a more sensory and stimulating learning experience and offering great challenge.
