Learning Outside the Classroom
At St Mary Cray Primary School, outdoor learning sessions take place across all year groups. Where possible, outdoor learning is incorporated into lessons. Over the course of the year, every class will also attend Forest School.
Learning outdoors takes place across all subjects including Maths, Literacy, Science, History, Geography and RE (Environment). During planning for all subjects, teachers actively look for opportunities to bring the learning outside - using creative techniques to bring the subject to life using the great outdoors. We are very lucky in that we have a wide range of different outdoor environments so children can have the most appropriate and memorable experiences possible.
