Outdoor Learning and Enrichment


It is our vision, at Mundella  Primary School, to design, create and deliver an outstanding curriculum to all of our children. As part of this vision we offer our 'Outdoor Learning and Enrichment' programme - OLE.

We have created, planned and delivered units of learning for each year group throughout the year, linked to their in-class topic based learning with a Design and Technology focus.

I work with different year groups, alongside the class Teaching Assistants, each term; taking half of the class at a time, to experience learning outside of their classroom and enriching their experiences with exciting activities; focussing on things that they might not be able to take part in when inside a classroom.
