Outdoor Learning

‘The best classroom and the richest cupboard is roofed only by the sky’ (Margaret McMillan)

At Lakenheath we believe that learning outdoors is great for children’s confidence, self -esteem, wellbeing and problem solving skills. It provides opportunities for the most memorable learning experiences and helps children to make sense of the world around them by putting their learning into a meaningful context.

We believe that every child should experience the world beyond the classroom as an essential part of their learning and personal development.

We are lucky to have areas in our school grounds which support our belief in outdoor learning, the field, pond, forest area and the outdoor classroom

Later in this academic year we will be starting to run Forest School sessions for some year groups in school.
