Learning outside the classroom
At Northwood Primary School we recognise the value of learning outside the classroom as an integral part of our pupils' education. Providing a wealth of learning opportunities in environments other than the classroom can readily develop the learning skills of enquiry, experiment, feedback, reflection, review, communication, problem solving, an enterprising attitude and cooperative learning – to name only some of the benefits.
Learning outside the classroom can help to bring many school subjects alive as they focus on real results and consequences.
Outdoor Classroom Day
Every year we celebrate national Outdoor Class Room day. We use these fantastic opportunities to organise a full day of engaging outdoor learning activities for children across the whole school. Please see photos from the days below as well as some information on the types of activities the children were involved with.
