We believe that children learn best when engaged in a range of meaningful, hands-on learning experiences.
Our school grounds are a brilliant resource that provides interest and inspiration for all. Children can relax, socialise, reflect and learn in total security in our school grounds. We have a passion and determination to promote outdoor learning, planting, growing and then baking/cooking with our own ingredients, which runs alongside, and enriches, the National Curriculums 'Cooking and Nutrition', 'Science, Plants' and 'PSHE' objectives. We have seen that our F2F (Farm 2 Fork) activities have a huge impact on children’s learning and behaviours. Activities beyond the classroom, across the whole curriculum, are embedded in routine weekly practice. Our F2F work influences every child and adult in our school.
Research carried out in November 2019 by UCL Institute of Education (commissioned by The Wildlife Trusts) found that, following outdoor activities, children not only experienced an overall increase in their well-being and health but also felt more connected to nature and had a greater level of enjoyment and motivation.
