Outdoor Learning at Cuddington and Dinton


At Cuddington and Dinton C of E School, we believe that spending time outdoors is as important for children’s development as learning to read and write.  We know that learning outside of the classroom engages and excites children in many ways. Many children are spending more time indoors and our programme of outdoor learning activities encourages them to enjoy and explore their environment. Being outdoors is the key to improving children’s health, wellbeing and happiness.  

Children to have the opportunity to be able to explore and learn outside throughout the year, experiencing the seasons and changing nature around them.  We will ensure every child has the opportunity to play and experience the world beyond the classroom as an essential part of learning and personal development; this will include maths and literacy activities outside.  Children have opportunities to develop abilities to assess and manage risk when making decisions which develops their critical thinking skills.
