What is Woodland Learning?
It is an approach to education that makes use of the outdoor environment to create a unique learning vehicle.
Woodland Learning sessions provide increasingly diverse opportunities for children to benefit from a supportive curriculum that can help children build positive values and attitudes about themselves, about learning and the environment in which they live. Children are given appropriately challenging and achievable tasks that build their confidence, skills and independence and are given time to thoroughly explore their thoughts, feelings and relationships. This time and reflective practice develops inter and intra-personal skills, which are well documented as being directly linked to learning skills.
Woodland Learning helps to enhance learning, increase self esteem, independence, risk taking, language and much more. The staff, by observing and working with the children when appropriate, will allow them to explore their own preferred learning styles while developing a lifelong love and understanding of the natural environment. Through carefully planned activities, children from all year groups can take part, enabling them to excel in all areas of their personal, academic and spiritual development.
