At MKPS we understand the importance of outdoor learning activities to the development and well-being of both our children and staff. Our unique Environmental Studies Centre enables pupils to experience many aspects of the environment firsthand and spend time learning about nature and sustainability.
The Outdoor Classroom provides opportunities for a diverse range of research and outdoor learning. Pupils explore living things in the pond and under stones and logs, always mindful not to disturb the natural habitat. Weather studies are a regular occurrence and our ICT suite enables pupils to monitor and record their findings.
A caring and concerned attitude towards the environment is nurtured whilst an understanding of how conflicts can occur between human needs and the needs of the environment is taught. With our outdoor learning facility, pupils are taught of the complex inter-relationships between physical conditions, natural processes, human activities, and the Earth’s resources. Each pupil in the school from 3 years old will spend regular valuable time at the Environmental Studies Centre.
