The outdoors provide a stimulating learning environment that compliments class-based learning. Learning outdoors predominantly uses a kinaesthetic and tactile learning style making it a perfect approach for students with SEN.

Our field-studies approach has been developed by Russell Walker (B.Ed Hons Outdoor & Science Education) and focuses on cross curricular activities to develop a student’s skills, including: personal learning thinking skills (PLTS); communication; perception, cognition, movement and functional life skills.

For example, for a Forest Study Day, we ride three-wheeler bikes around the forest stopping to observe and collect samples. We then complete further analysis ‘back in the lab’. All of which is appropriate to the student’s ability levels.
