Our school encourages the pupils to learn outdoor and has a beautiful playground with new play equipment and astro turf.
The school is set in the heart of Farnham and this gives us wonderful opportunities to make use of our local environment outside.
For example the children use
*the churchyard next door (to learn about trees, to go litter picking, draw the church or Easter egg hunt)
*PE field at Potter's Gate School (for PE lessons and Sports Days)
(for PE pictures click here)
*Forest School at Potter's Gate School (for hands-on learning experiences in a natural environment with trees)
(for more Forest School Information click here.)
*Bishop Meadow (to observe insects, paint stones)
*Space2Grow Acre (to learn about symmetry, learn about Tudor Times potions & listen to stories)
*Gostrey Meadow Park (to learn about bridges or forces)
*Farnham Castle (to learn about castles)
*Farnham Park (to draw or to have a treat on the play equipment)
*Allotment (to do some gardening, watering, create art and learn about plants and wildlife)
*Council Green Houses (to learn about planting hanging baskets)
We also have local school/class outings to:
*Pierre Pont Farm, Farnham
*Alice Holt, Farnham
*The Sculpture Park, Churt
*Wisley Gardens, Woking
Outdoor Learning at the Bishop's Meadow Fun Day
A group of St. Andrew's Pupils were very delighted to be invited to the Bishop's Meadow Fun Day along with pupils from two other schools.
The children did a Wildlife Walk in the orchard observing insects and painted smooth stones. After a picnic lunch in the Space2grow acre the children relaxed and listened to stories by storyteller Jim Munro and learnt about potions used during Tudor times.
Thank you to the parent helpers (who learnt a lot too), Bishop's Meadow Trust and of course to the St. Andrew's children who were a delight to work with.
