Outdoor Learning

Forest Schools

At Walwayne Court Primary School we understand the importance that learning outdoors plays in the development of a child’s learning.  We have Forest School sessions run every week ensuring that all classes have a  block of Forest School each year.  Below are some of the benefits children get from participating in Forest School.

  • Developing physical skills both gross and fine motor skills.
  • Co-ordination.
  • Learning to take risks in their learning.
  • Practical and skills based learning.
  • Cross-curricular learning.
  • Social skills.
  • Self-initiated learning.
  • Making children more resilient.
  • Learning from the world around them.

 

 

Gardening

We have a wonderful allotment at Walwayne and each class is involved in planting, caring, harvesting and eating all the fruit and vegetables.  We have raised beds and a polytunnel.
