Huge potential for learning opportunities.
At St Dominic’s we believe that nature encourages children to explore and discover, to take new risks and challenges and to learn new skills. Children have occasion to express their imagination, develop their creative and critical thinking skills, and to learn across all areas of the curriculum. Children need to be active with their bodies and minds to experience nature in all its forms. At St Dominic’s children are given unhurried time in an outdoor environment so their learning can have deeper meaning and create long lasting memories.
We also value school visits as a way for pupils to experience new outdoor environments. In the past these have included a visit to the Wolseley Centre for a geography river study, exploring the gardens and ground management at Shugborough, Tatton Park and Swynnerton estate, and an outdoor survival skills camping trip.
