At Comber Grove Primary we are passionate about outdoor learning and spend every opportunity we can enjoying the great outdoors! We know that research tells us that being outside is great for wellbeing and it also provides endless awe and wonder to stimulate young minds. We use this to inspire children and ignite their curiosity about the world around them, providing innovation, challenges and open ended resources in their everyday experiences.
As well as daily opportunities to relax, learn and experience the outdoors, your child will also have lots of fun at their weekly Forest School sessions. Bug hunts, den building, climbing and toasting marshmallows are some of the many exciting learning experiences we provide whilst enjoying the secluded woodlands throughout the year. We embrace the amazing outdoors whatever the weather!
We seek to develop children’s understanding of the world around them and encourage them to be little scientists by using their imagination, emotions and senses providing activities such as mini-beast hunts, leaf matching, and picture making with natural materials. The children become aware of the sounds and smells associated with the outdoors, learning to respect and appreciate their natural surroundings. Learning about life cycles, natural habitats, tree identification and exploring the flora and fauna of our nurseries.
