At Aureus Primary School we believe that learning need not take place solely within the classroom. Outdoor time often provides the most memorable learning experiences and helps children to make sense of the world around them by putting their learning into a meaningful context.
Being outdoors has a positive impact on children’s sense of well-being. It offers opportunities for exploring learning in different ways and on different scales than when indoors. It gives children first-hand contact with weather, seasons and the natural world and offers them freedom to explore, use their senses and be physically active.
At Aureus Primary School , we are extremely fortunate to be set in large grounds, with sports fields, a hard play area, a sensory garden and a wildlife area, which are all resources which will positively enhance our educational provision.
Our Early Years and Key Stage 1 classrooms allow for secure indoor-outdoor education.
Opportunities for outdoor learning will be planned to enhance our STEAM based curriculum, as well as to develop personal and social skills, communication, problem solving, thinking skills and teamwork.
