Outdoor Learning

Learning outside of the classroom enables children to further develop their curiosity, confidence, creativity, communication and understanding of the natural environment.

Outdoor Learning is embedded within the curriculum. We believe that using nature and the outdoors can help to nurture children’s holistic development, help to build their self-esteem and resilience, and enable them to become better at managing their own risk.

The children access ‘The Hub’ (our own outdoor classroom), ‘The Hollow’ (outdoor team building area) and our own woodland. The children experience to a wide range of activities designed to enrich and develop their learning from within the classroom; helping them to gain and improve new skills.

Wild Wonders and Wild Explorers

Wild Wonders and Wild Explorers are firm favourites with the children at Blundell’s Pre-Prep and Prep. Delivered through weekly sessions for children from Nursery One to Year Three, our bespoke outdoor learning curriculum has been designed by our own Forest School trained teachers to excite, inspire, and meet the needs of our youngest learners.

Armed with their own outdoor learning passports, the children head outdoors throughout the year to explore, develop new skills and enjoy activities within our school woodland, wildlife and nature area, purpose built outdoor classroom and sizeable mud kitchen. With a strong emphasis on helping the children to develop a growth mindset, children can expect to enjoy a range of activities from building working bridges, growing their own vegetables, whittling toy mice and, of course, toasting marshmallows!
