At Waterfoot Primary School, our learning goes beyond the four walls of the classroom!
Outdoor time often provides the most memorable learning experiences and helps children to make sense of the world around them by putting their learning into a meaningful context.
Being outdoors has a positive impact on children’s sense of well-being. It offers opportunities for exploring learning in different ways and on different scales than when indoors. It gives children first-hand contact with weather, seasons and the natural world and offers them freedom to explore, use their senses and be physically active!
We are extremely fortunate to be set in large grounds which will positively enhance our educational provision. We have developed our grounds to have the most amazing Waterfoot woodland area, a vast space for outdoor learning! Our Early Years and Key Stage 1 classrooms also allow for secure indoor-outdoor education. Opportunities for outdoor learning are planned to enhance our curriculum and our school values, as well as to develop personal and social skills, communication, problem solving, thinking skills and teamwork.
