Learning Outside the Classroom (LOtC) helps give pupils inspiring, hands on experiences learning knowledge, skills and understanding in a real world context. It helps improve understanding of the environment in which they live and grow, whilst developing key communication and social skills. children are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities and experiences across and beyond the curriculum, contributing fully to the life of their school and surrounding communities. In doing so they learn to recognise their own worth, work well with others and become increasingly responsible for their own learning. LOtC engages and includes all children, helping raise achievement and confidence.
In July 2017 we received the news that Malvern Way had achieved gold accreditation from the council for Learning Outside of the Classroom. This award recognises the exemplary provision at our school ensuring our children have access to frequent, continuous and progressive opportunities to take their learning away from the classroom.
In January 2017 we were awarded our Level Three certificate from the Royal Horticultural Society. We will receive a voucher for a fantastic ‘Schools Constant Garden’ from Rocket Gardens who will grow and send us a series of boxes brimming full of young vegetable and fruit plants to help our veg patch burst into life this season.
