Outdoor Learning Schedule and Themes for 2023-2024


"No one will protect what they don't care about, and no one will care about what they have never experienced." - David Attenborough


At St Joseph's, we believe that in order to gain an appreciation of the natural world and feel passionate about protecting it, children need to experience it for themselves. Our regular outdoor learning days help us to provide children with opportunities to enjoy and understand nature whilst also benefitting from the positive affect that being outdoors can have on their physical and mental wellbeing.


Please see below for an overview of outdoor learning themes for this academic year. Please be advised that the week that your child's year group participates in outdoor learning is subject to change as a result of educational events that are not yet confirmed at this point of the year. Class teachers will let parents and carers know an exact date at least one week in advance.


On outdoor learning days, children are to come to school wearing clothing suitable for getting muddy! Please also consider the weather conditions that day and provide a waterproof jacket/sun hat/sunscreen/extra layers etc. as appropriate.
