Outdoor Learning

Outdoor Learning plays an important part of learning at The Laurels which is embedded within our school curriculum. Encouraging children to move out of their comfort zones and become resilient, risk takers will help equip them for the unknown future they face and allows the children to take part in risk-assessed not risk-free activities.

All children take part in a unit of forest school activities each academic year and have the opportunity to build rope swings, tie knots, make a fire and cook outdoors. They also complete art and DT activities using the natural environment as their blank canvas.
