Help! We need a new outdoor classroom!
We did it

Our old outdoor classroom was destroyed by storms and we want to buy a new, permanent structure for our children to enjoy for years to come!

We love our outdoor learning area and our children use it every day to enhance teaching and learning experiences. We had a temporary outdoor classroom which was destroyed by storms and we need to raise £4,500 for a new, permanent structure.

At OLSK, Outdoor Learning includes discovery, experimentation, learning about and connecting to the natural world, as well as engaging in adventure activities.  

Taking the curriculum outside can improve attainment, increase engagement, and develop a wide range of skills including problem solving, communication and resilience.

Our outdoor classroom is an external shelter within the school grounds, which creates an extended covered practical area for outdoor learning and play.

It provides an area for our children to have hands-on lessons. This could include messy art projects, science experiments or loud musical lessons that can’t be conducted indoors.

Every class has the opportunity to go down to the outdoor classroom and use the area for teaching, learning and exploring.
