LEARNING OUTSIDE THE CLASSROOM

LOtC

Here at Mount Pleasant we believe that all pupils should experience rich and purposeful learning environments outside of the classroom, irrespective of their age, ability or circumstances.

Although we are a relatively small site, we try to make the best use of every single space available, and we are passionate about learning outside of the classroom for all.

We strive for our pupils to be resilient, well rounded individuals who have a love and respect for the world around. By providing real life, relevant, quality learning experiences, we hope to engage minds, excite imaginations and develop a life-long love of learning.

Our Forest School

As part of our Forest Schools Project children throughout the school visit Saltwells Wood to do a variety of activities from Nature Walks, Fungus forays, Artwork, Bark Rubbings, Bug Hunts and Photography Trail.

They are usually taken to Saltwells Wood in small groups using the school minibus.

The children really enjoy walking around the woods looking at nature in a facility that is so close to our school.

Children also sometimes have the opportunity to work with and talk to the rangers who can answer any questions that are asked about the woods.
