Learning Outside the Classroom

We are strongly committed to providing varied, engaging, experiential and cross-curricular Learning Outside the Classroom opportunities for our children at Fairfield. 

Throughout their time at Fairfield, the children will be working on a weekly basis towards a Learning Outside the Classroom award, achieving Bronze in Early Years, Silver at the end of KS1 and Gold upon leaving at the end of Year 4. 

Our LOtC team is:

Mrs Oldershaw       Mrs Parsons        Mrs Yeomans        Mrs Wilkes


Our theme for this term is Bushcraft.

We will be learning about:


Campfire Cooking and Nutrition


Man-made shelters

Natural Shelters

In addition to our in house award criteria we are fortunate to have developed strong links within our local community which allows the children further LOtC enrichment opportunities.

We currently have strong links with the Woodland Trust Volunteers at Pepperwood and our local Housing Trust BDHT.
