Outdoor Learning

We believe that Outdoor Learning is fundamental to children's learning and development. Our children love to explore the natural environment and have daily access to outdoor play. This can take place within our secure outdoor play areas, local walks or accessing the Hamiltonhill Claypits and canal area.

We have developed 'Walking Wednesdays'. On this day every week children and staff from each playroom go on a walk along the local canal area. Parents/carers are invited to join us. If you wish to join at any time please let a member of staff know. We would love to see you there!

Here are some great ideas for you to do with your child.


Glasgow Outdoors: Glasgow Counts

This is a resource we use in nursery to support the learning and teaching of numeracy outdoors. We use this in conjunction with the Glasgow Counts Framework document and it links to the Curriculum for Excellence to assist staff to plan high quality learning experiences for the children outdoors.

This resource includes a variety of activities which you can also carry out at home. If you would like to find out more please click on the picture below.
