Outdoor Learning and Trips
Learning outside the classroom is defined as the use of places other than the classroom for teaching and learning. It is about getting children and young people out and about, providing them with challenging, exciting and different experiences to help them learn. (Institute for Outdoor Learning)
At Werrington Primary, we know that giving children experiences outside of the classroom is vital for developing knowledge, creating practical memories and encouraging children to be part of experiences that would not be available in the classroom. By visiting places of worship, fantastic museums and other educational venues, our classes are able to take part in amazing experiences that give them access to artefacts, specific subject experts and locations that bring their learning to life!
Residentials are an important part of the children's outdoor learning experiences at our school and we offer a range of overnight adventures that are offered as the children progress through the school. This year we will be taking Year 6 children for a 3-night camping residential at Ferry Meadows and Year 4 will be staying away from home at Grafham Water where they will be taking part in lots of outdoor physical activities on the water and in the surrounding countryside.
