Fairway Infant School

Outdoor Learning

At Fairway, the children have the opportunity to participate in outdoor learning.


Each year group participates in a 6 week block of learning, where the children are given the opportunity to play and explore their own interests, enabling them to direct their learning and develop a relationship with nature. Sessions help to stimulate creativity, build confidence and teach children new skills via activities such as shelter-building, green wood-working, natural art and fire-lighting.


Outdoor learning has a child-led, play-based ethos that offers children opportunities to succeed, improve self-esteem and develop as a person through hands-on learning in a natural setting.


Our outdoor learning ethos is:


Explore, Learn and Achieve!
