Outdoor Learning

Love, Learn, Discover.

At Lewis Street we engage in outdoor learning so our children to grow and develop diverse skills in a new environment. Our school staff take selected pupils on a weekly basis to a local woodland to take part in the programme.

Our programs have been carefully developed in partnership with outdoor learning professionals to be enjoyable and to enable our children to develop internal qualities such as:
  • Perseverance and Resilience
  • Confidence and a "can do" attitude
  • Emotional Intelligence
  • Tolerance and Respect for others
  • Respect for our community and world
  • Integrity and Trust
  • Self-Esteem and Dignity
  • A desire to Explore and Learn
  • Team Skills and Practical Skills

Wild Tribe

Year 3 children may participate in Wild Tribe, a small outdoor, therapeutic and developmental intervention.
The programme develops children’s sense of personal safety, security and self confidence. The programme also concentrates on developing respect for self, others and the environment through an understanding of children’s responsibilities to others and the world around us.

Forest Crew

Year 5 participate in Forest Crew, where children undertake group challenges and tasks.
Forest Crew encourages children to think about their relationships and develops important social skills, teamworking and problems solving. These skills can then be transferred back into everyday lives and the classroom.
