We believe that every child should experience the world beyond the classroom as an essential part of learning and growing, whatever their age, ability or circumstances. At Lyng Primary School learning happens everywhere, from our Forest School area to our kitchen garden and where possible educational visits. By encouraging and supporting teachers to teach anywhere, children will understand that they can learn everywhere. Their learning will not be limited to desks and chairs in a classroom, but to the world around them.
Our curriculum is linked so that all subjects such as history, geography, RE, SMSC and DT lessons come alive for our learners. We nurture our children’s social and emotional development, both within our SMSC, and with our variety of educational visits. Children have many experiences beyond the school, such as going on residential trips, visits to the theatre and visiting local attractions. LOtC is important in our vision to help all our children to reach their full potential; it is the golden thread running through all that we do.
We want to make sure that parents, governors and staff continue to hear about Learning Outside the Classroom because it will fundamentally enhance and develop the curriculum; enriching the challenging and fun experiences we offer all children. Upon leaving our school, children will be confident, happy and always ready to learn.
