Outdoor Learning: #outdoorllangan
At Llangan school, we place a strong emphasis on promoting pupil wellbeing, outdoor learning and ensuring pupil voice shapes our curriculum and school development. Our grounds are incredible with a large garden, fields, arboretum, nature area and forest schools’ areas which allows for many exciting learning experiences.
It is well-documented that healthier, happier children do better in school. In our school learning in the outdoor environment encourages skills such as problem-solving and negotiating risk, which are important for child development. Other skills that are developed include; pupils’ interpersonal and social skills, their knowledge of healthy schools, sustainability and awareness of the environment. It also stimulates their minds and creates a focus or stimuli for classwork, as well as developing the key skills. Outdoor learning is central to our curriculum in Llangan Primary School.
