Outdoor Learning at Stocksbridge Junior School
At Stocksbridge Junior School, we are fortunate to have such amazing and stimulating grounds. This has been enhanced by the creation and development of the Cedarwood area. It is our aim to provide a plethora of outdoor learning opportunities at regular intervals throughout the year. We are also developing a bee colony which will gradually be incorporated into the wider curriculum.
Outdoor learning at Stocksbridge Junior School is a theme we aim to include links to in our wider curriculum. Our intention is to inspire children’s curiosity and interest to explore the wider environment and develop and hone skills, which are carefully entwined into our curriculum. Key life skills such as cooking, first aid and navigation skills are developed as the children pass through their learning journey with us.
As children move through school, their knowledge and skills will develop progressively, and they will be constantly making links to prior learning whilst also being introduced to a wealth of new skills, which we believe are unique to Stocksbridge Junior School. By gaining their badges, our pupils will have demonstrated a host of skills whilst broadening their leadership styles and sharpening their decision making.
