Outdoor Learning

Welcome to Outdoor Learning at Pewsey Primary School...

We are very lucky to have our own Outdoor Learning site within the school grounds.  Mr Jeffery, our Outdoor Learning Leader, is continually working with the children to develop a site which allows them space, away from traditional classroom learning, to explore their natural surroundings. Outdoor Learning gives every child the opportunity to  learn more about themselves - challenge their fears, work on their emotional literacy and take managed risks to develop greater confidence and self-esteem!  Not every child will thrive in a classroom environment.  We believe that by offering Outdoor Learning activities, we allow every child the opportunity to find a way of unearthing their hidden talents and acquiring new skills in their quest to become the best that they can be.
