Outdoor Learning

For at least half a day every week, each class visits the neighbouring National Trust woodland, where we have a dedicated roped off area of woodland. Children get up to all sorts of activities, from building dens to researching minibeasts. Our Outdoor Learning has been designed to allow children to explore the great outdoors whilst linking their expereinces to the National Curriculum. Follow-up sessions back in the classroom help link the indoors with the outdoors and also consolidate learning. Our pupils at Sherborne certainly know a great deal about our local wildlife and this stays with them throughout their lives.
