Outdoor Learning

Children and adults at our school enjoy learning outside; in the school grounds, local village and woodland and as members of the National Trust in Stowe gardens.
Our School
Our school curriculum is designed to give all the children equal access to all learning opportunities. The whole school environment provides these opportunities, so that learning can occur at any time or place. As a result, the children find satisfaction in learning because it is real and relevant to them.
We believe that every child should experience the world beyond the classroom as an essential part of learning and personal development. We have a well-planned outdoor garden that provides different areas for learning from gardening, woodwork, tables for pen and paper work and benches for group work. We make full use of our local area with the school situated in a village rich in opportunities from parks, woodland and farms. Our nursery, Receptio and Year 1 and 2 classrooms all have outdoor classrooms that allow for secure indoor-outdoor freeflow education, accessible to all children throughout the year.

Our class topics are planned with the outdoor environment in mind to provide further motivating, exciting, different and relevant activities from nursery through to Year 6. These are planned across all curriculum areas and help to develop personal and social skills, communication, problem solving, thinking skills and teamwork, as well as English, Mathematics and all other curriculum areas. Our outdoor learning experiences are delivered through a combination of school-based outdoor learning, visits to other places and residential programmes. The Syresham Passport also provides many opportunities for children to be outside in a variety of settings.
