Outdoor Learning

“I will understand problem solving, self exploration, decision making, number relationship, structures, complex vocabulary, healthy living, cause and effect, creativity, imaginative thinking and my natural world when I am big, because I play outside while I am little.” – ‘How We Learn’

At Kingfisher we believe that all children should explore and experience learning outside. Being outside in nature helps us to explore our senses in the real world. Touching a tree, smelling wild flowers, playing in natural textures i.e. mud and water helps develop our understanding of the world around us. Through our Creative Curriculum the children have many opportunities to explore the great outdoors in our numerous outdoor environments, for example the Texture Kitchen. We encourage children to interact with their surroundings through directed activities and also child led play.
