Farming skills and adventures in the forest were firmly on the curriculum last week at Bredon School as pupils headed outside to celebrate Outdoor Classroom Day.

Pupils from Bredon School embraced the global campaign and took part in a range of activities aimed to encourage pupils to get outdoors, be active and think creatively about traditional subjects.

Among other initiatives, maths lessons were conducted on the school’s tennis courts, musicians took inspiration from Bredon’s four-acre Forest School to mimic the sounds of nature, and delicious treats were cooked on campfires and in the school’s outdoor pizza oven during food technology classes.

Nick Oldham, Headmaster at Bredon School, said: “We celebrate outdoor education every day at Bredon School and know the positive difference learning outdoors makes to pupils.

"Both outdoor learning and play are integral to the curriculum here and we already have achieved the aims set out by this global initiative.

"Through working on our school farm and embracing the extensive outdoor education opportunities, our pupils develop important life skills and grow in confidence.

"By taking part, we are celebrating all that we do here and hope to inspire other schools globally to take part next year.”
