Learning Outside the Classroom
At St Mary Cray Primary School, outdoor learning sessions take place across all Key Stages. Where possible, outdoor learning is incorporated into lessons. Over the course of the year, every class will also engage in planned forest schooling.
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 opportunity that the great outdoors provides. We are very lucky in that we have a wide range of different outdoor environments that we can use so children can have the most appropriate and memorable experiences possible.
