Better Never Stops – Mastery Learning in Pursuit of Excellence
Outdoor Learning



Outdoor learning is an important part of teaching across the curriculum at Penn Wood School and teaching staff ensure that they take full advantage of the outdoor areas to enhance learning.   These opportunities provide a rich diet of learning, motivate children and make memorable experiences.

There are many opportunities for Maths to take place outside. For example, Year One have spent some lessons exploring time and language related to time (quicker, slower, longest etc.); they did physical activities such as races etc. so that they could experience these words being used in real life contexts, leading to a greater understanding of what the words mean.
