Lydgate Infant School

Outdoor Education

Here at Riversdale, we believe the outdoor environment is an inspiring medium for meaningful and memorable learning experiences in terms of skills and personal development. These learning experiences have been shown to be particularly effective when there is a process to encourage the transfer of learning back to the young person's everyday life.

Outdoor learning opportunities makes a significant contribution to the well-being of young people provide a wealth of learning experiences that support the development of these skills, whether it is through team building and problem-solving exercises, orienteering, climbing, journeying, fieldwork, cultural visits etc.

The outdoors provides a fun and challenging environment in which to learn and offers young people a clear framework in which to develop risk management skills, maintaining a healthy lifestyle and for young people to make a positive contribution as responsible citizens when working in the outdoor environment.
