Outdoor Learning Gallery

At New Ford we pride ourselves in giving children the best possible opportunities and hands on experiences. This is why we promote outdoor learning widely across the whole school.


Please see our EYFS gallery below, to see some of our fabulous outdoor learning.



Understanding of the World.

We have loved exploring the ice and snow outside today.

We have been talking about how it appears and what will happen when we touch it.

Autumn 2


The Nursery children enjoyed an Autumnal walk around our school grounds, looking for signs of seasonal change.  We saw leaves that had changed colour and were falling from the trees.  They were beautiful shades of yellow, orange, red and brown.  We also discovered pumpkins growing in the allotment, and berries growing on some of the trees.

The children have had a lovely time exploring the outdoor environment.


Summer 2021


Look at what we have found growing in our garden....Strawberries!

We are very lucky in Reception; we have planted lots of different fruits and vegetables and some of them are now ready to eat!

Summer 2021


Whilst we have been learning about 'Holidays' our Nursery children have had great fun outdoors, using their imagination and problem-solving skills to build camps and dens, make vegetable stew, and cook on the camp fire.


They have also been producing large scale art inspired by Andy Goldsworthy who uses natural objects such as wood and pebbles to produce his artwork.

Spring 2021

Our Nursery children have been enjoying lots of activities in our outdoor learning area to develop gross motor skills - water painting, writing and mark making with paintbrushes on the walls, brushing with bubbles, travelling and balancing, fishing, and enjoying planting in our potting shed.

Week Beginning 29th March 2021

Reception have had a fabulous week in the warmer weather exploring our school grounds.

We have been on a walk to see what we could spot as we now enter the Spring season.

We found lots of insects, buds on trees and flowers that have started to grow.
