OUTDOOR LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES

 

‘Wellie Wednesday’

 

In addition to planning outdoor opportunities linked to our weekly planning we also plan for every year group to spend a full day, every half term working in the school environment. Over the year every child will experience six full days of outdoor learning. On this day children come to school dressed for the outdoors ‘Wellie Wednesday’ and bring a packed lunch to eat outside.
