Outdoor Learning

We believe that our children benefit from visits, residentials, visitors and making the most of our grounds and the surrounding area. These opportunties help to widen their use of langugae, build their indpendnece and thinkning skills and helps them to apply their learning while having fun!

This year year one will be lucky enough to be our first children to experience Forest Schools. This will allow them to go out into our tree and science area and expolre the plants and wildlife while learning new skills such as shelter building, working as a team and problem solving. They will be able to explore nature in all weathers.

We have also introduce a full programme of outdoor learning for all pupils from Nursery through to year 6.

Our science area is now ready to use where the children can try out pond dipping, look at the insects and creatures that live in the log piles and explore the plants that grow in this area.

We have also invested in games and activities for playtimes and now have Mr Briggs and sports apprentices to help run organised games and activities dring the children's play times.

Glebefields has definitely gone outside!
