Outdoor Learning at Woodstone

Outdoor Learning

"I hear and I forget
I see and I remember
I do and I understand"
Confucius (551 – 479 B.C.)

Outdoor education is a core component of our curriculum at Woodstone. All children participate in our Forest School programme and we take learning outdoors whenever possible. Our outdoor education programme nurtures a profound connection between our children and the natural world. Through hands-on activities, exploration, and guided experiences in our local woodlands, children develop curiosity, resilience, and a lifelong passion for learning, all while promoting environmental awareness and a strong sense of community among our children. We are fortunate to have a large forest area on site, equipped with an outdoor classroom, playhouse, fire circle, mud kitchen, and numerous spaces for children to engage in play and exploration. Through these enriching experiences, our goal is to foster a deep connection with nature, encourage hands-on learning, and ignite a sense of adventure in our students.
