Outdoor Learning Curriculum

Throughout the spring term and summer break the school's allotment area has been rejuvenated and further developed to enable some of the children who attend the school to have a hands on curriculum that includes horticulture and bio-diversity as an enhanced element. The journey began with the 2019 eco council evaluating the existing space and then designing an allotment area that included a greenhouse and planting beds for each year group.  Through funding from the PTA and local council contributions, the development is now complete ready for a September launch. The children across all classes are now going to begin some planting during the warm autumn afternoons. The area will provide opportunities for children's sensory development along with opportunities to learn about responsibility, developing patience and social skills through horticulture.
