Outdoor Learning

At Stanburn, we believe outdoor learning can open up new experiences and opportunities for pupils to learn in the fresh air, embrace the natural world and discover new things around them. We are lucky to have spacious grounds, including the field, and two playgrounds with equipment that has been developed over a number of years. Year One have daily access to our ‘Environmental Area’, and Reception classes have a dedicated outdoor learning environment. 

Reception

Our new Reception children have loved using the exciting outside learning area right by their classrooms! They have been creating music, developing their gross motor skills using a variety of equipment and engaging in role play to develop their speaking and listening skills as well as their story telling and social skills. These learning opportunities mirror, complement and enhance the learning that happens inside as well. Have a look at the gallery on our website for some more pictures.

Year 3

In Year 3, we were making Stone Age camps as part of our learning about the Stone Age. We used twigs to build a fire pit, because in the Stone Age, they didn’t have heaters like us, but they could make fires. We used branches to make shelters. We used lots of natural materials, just like the Stone Age people.

Year 6

After learning about the Plant Kingdom in our Science lessons, we went to our school field to try and collect different plants. Then we classified them into the four categories: flowering plants, conifers, ferns and mosses, back in the classroom. We found lots of flowering plants, some conifers and mosses but no ferns.
