Learning Outside the Classroom

Learning Outside the Classroom (LOtC) at Yeading Infants features a fantastic wealth of activities that support our ethos of lifelong learning. Learning does not need to be confined just to the classroom, and we have a rich variety of resources at Yeading to support children in learning and developing holistically wherever they are in the school. At Yeading we have always believed that learning happens everywhere, so it is important to ensure lots of opportunities for this learning to take place are supported and planned for. The benefits for children are phenomenal. Children gain knowledge and apply skills to make them more independent. This further supports our teaching of the 5Rs

· Reasoning

· Resilience

· Resourcefulness

· Responsibility

· Reflectivity

It is our belief that when children gain in –depth knowledge and skills and have the opportunity to apply them in different contexts, they can then fulfil their potential to becoming empowered and confident individuals.

From March 2019, we will be focussing on achieving the Learning Outside the Classroom Gold Award, which is a nationally recognised award overseen by the Council for Learning Outside the classroom.  Please find more information at the website below:
