Here at Linthwaite Ardron it is our aim to ensure that our children receive a fully rounded and engaging curriculum which promotes lifelong learning and fosters critical thinking skills. Our wild area provides opportunities to use a variety of skills not always visible in a classroom setting and can make significant contributions to numeracy, literacy, science and of course understanding the environment.
Outdoor learning also supports children’s problem-solving skills and nurtures their creativity, as well as providing rich opportunities for their developing imagination, inventiveness and resourcefulness.
With an outdoor learning area that is fully embedded into the curriculum, children can contextualise their learning and highlight links between different subject areas which in turn will deepen their understanding of them.
We will continually look at ways in which to improve our wild area to give the best experience to children possible so as to instil in them a genuine interest and thirst for learning.
