What is Outdoor Learning at Pinhoe?
The principles below are the fundamental elements of our Outdoor Learning:
• it involves being outdoors as a central part of the experience
• is open to all
• seeks to use the outdoor environment as a vehicle for transforming the experience into knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviours
• frequently has a challenging, adventurous element
• often involves some physical activity
• always respects the environment
• is often cited as being both memorable and fun
‘The best outcomes are achieved when outdoor learning is designed as a frequent and progressive activity relating to broader learning that links to everyday experiences in a classroom and to real-life experiences beyond. The common thread is the focus on positive outcomes in personal and social development.’ English Outdoor Council 2015
