What is Outdoor Learning

Come OutsideThis is a beautiful dedicated space in The Milestone School which is a classroom, just without a roof! We teach various topics, linked with the subjects in the curriculum, out in the natural environment.

In the Outdoor Learning Area the children have the time and space to develop their skills, interests and understanding with a range of practical, hands-on experiences.
