Our teachers have been part of a training programme called Forest School.
Our campus has a spacious play area directly behind the school with a good size green space, pathways, soft surface and climbing frame.
These immediate areas are used creatively to create engaging outdoor learning experiences
In addition, to seizing the spontaneous “teachable moments” which are driven by the children natural inquisitiveness, teachers at BEPS also plan lessons in the outdoor environment that are linked to their maths, languages or modules studies.
Another valuable aspect of learning outside the classroom is the opportunity for children to challenge their bodies physically.
As educators, we all strive to provide experiences that engage and motivate our students. We feel that giving students opportunities in the outdoor environments support their development. The benefit of being in nature has been proven to increase imagination, problem-solving skills, self-confidence and the ability to focus.
