Developing Key Skills & Outdoor Learning
Using Key Skills
Every opportunity is given to engage pupils, foster curiosity through planned questioning and shared sustained thinking. Key skills are developed in order to broaden and build on learning across a range of subjects and areas of learning. We have also developed an enterprise week where each class develops a product/activity to sell at the end of week event. Through this children are able to develop their skills of team-working, planning, communication, problem solving and evaluation. ‘Focus Weeks’ are held throughout the year which enrich the curriculum and help develop the community.
Out of classroom learning strongly supports learners' enjoyment, achievement and in turn teaches children to work with each other and be co-operative. Being outdoors enables children to develop physical skills like balance, stamina and coordination as well as a sense of well being.
