Outdoor Learning

At Parkhill Junior School, we are very committed to outdoor learning. Outdoor learning is planned to enrich and enhance the children’s in-school learning experiences.

This gives every pupil in the school the opportunity to enjoy and learn from our wonderful natural world on a regular basis. Through outdoor learning, pupils will become confident, resilient and determined learners. “Look deep into nature and then you will understand everything.” Albert Einstein

Science- Living things and their habitat

As part of our science lessons we were able to visit Hainault Country Park. Using pooters we were able to capture mini- beasts directly from their habitat and study them up close.

To encourage diversity in our school grounds, the Year 4 children made a bug hotel using a range of recycled materials and natural materials they found in the school grounds. They also created timelines in the playground during a maths lesson.
