Our young people have plenty of opportunity to get out and explore the great outdoors, in both our nature reserve and forest schools.
There's lots to explore ... toasting marshmallows over a campfire, meeting wildlife and identifying trees for starters. Forest School is integral to our curriculum, and outdoor experiences help our children learn about the natural environment, how to handle risks and, most importantly, how to use their own initiative to solve problems while co-operating with others.
Dame Bradbury's also has a teaching and environmental garden and a dipping pond - perfect for keen eco-explorers.
Nature reserve at Latham Road
We also have our own nature reserve in Latham Road, which includes an eco-classroom. This outdoor learning space is used by pupils in Cambridge.
Whilst they search for bugs, cook up a feast in the mud kitchen, and find the best wood to make a bow and arrow, our pupils are also taking risks, exploring, and working together. Pupils also spend time applying specific scientific skills to identify species and carry out a range of environmental measures.
