St. Matthew’s CE Primary School is surrounded by woodland, meadows, rivers and ponds. Our incredible outdoor space means we love to learn outdoors. Outdoor learning helps to build confidence, resilience and problem solving skills. We value these skills and the team spirit that is created when we work together outdoors.

Please take a look at our class blogs to see what we have been up to outdoors.

New Fire Pit!

Take a look at our new fire pit ready for roasting marshmallows during the winter. The children who win Star of The Week are taken out for a treat which includes all the tasty things we can cook on the open fire.


Frosted Feet and Toasted Treats!

The weather was against us all this morning but that didn’t stop us going outside for our Star of the Week treat. The fire kept us warm and was perfect for toasting some delicious marshmallows, there was even a chance to wrap up warm in our lovely hammock!
