Outdoor Learning in the Nursery

The nursery children have been learning outdoors using the nursery garden as an outdoor classroom.

The Red class braved the rain and wind on Wednesday morning and, despite the weather, 15 out of 17 children said that they enjoyed the session and would like to do it again.

Leo enjoyed “splashing in the puddles and being a mud monster”
John enjoyed “Vinnie chasing”
Macie liked “when my feet got covered in mud”

The weather was kinder to the Yellow class and they enjoyed a winter’s morning in the garden and even saw a flurry of snow. They enjoyed a cosy cup of hot chocolate to warm them up.

The experiences and outcomes detailed within Curriculum for Excellence are enhanced during outdoor play. The opportunities for learning are limitless. Building the Ambition highlights the importance of outdoor learning for the children.

  • Experiences which allow children to play outside, get fresh air and physical activity
  • An environment which offers daily access ti the wider environment which is rich in opportunities for inquiry learning
  • An environment which gives regular access to the outdoors to encourage the growing understanding of the world around them
  • An environment which provides natural resources which help to stimulate all of the sense
