Outdoor Education at Hungerford Primary School
We believe in the benefits of outdoor play. At Hungerford Primary Academy we want our children to benefit from the fantastic facilities that the natural world has on offer to enrich learning.
Every child from Nursery to year 6 experiences bespoke outdoor learning sessions to develop knowledge and skills, and to help meet the needs of the new curriculum. We feel it fits into a holistic approach to education, teaching children empathy, resilience and confidence.
Our staff enrich learning by using outdoor learning wherever possible, while our specialist outdoor education team works closely with all teachers to deliver fun sessions that utilise the school woodland, gardens and natural spaces as much as possible. Children learn about the world outside, which we hope will inspire them to look after it and make the most out their local environment.
