Outdoor Learning at Whitecross

Stepping outside feels good!

It’s energising, uplifting and a great way to ground back into nature.

At Whitecross we have a fantastic outdoor space and we go outside whatever the weather!

Outdoor learning improves child development, supports mental health and well-being, deepens nature connections and promotes more inclusive and engaging learning.

Your child will:

  • Have fun
  • Explore and investigate
  • Be imaginative
  • Take calculated risks and challenges
  • Develop a love of nature
  • Experience awe and wonder

all whilst learning outdoors!

Forest School Sessions

We hold a weekly forest school session within the outdoor area for small groups throughout the year.

At Forest School, the children have opportunities to develop the skills of using a range of tools, taking risks and taking part in specific forest school activities.  Of course, we always earn and enjoy a yummy hot chocolate with toasted marshmallows at the end of our sessions.
