We are vey fortunate to have a wonderful outdoor learning area that is used by all children from Nursery to Year 6. Classes have timetabled sessions over the year with our Outdoor Learning Leader, Mrs Sweeney. At Rolph we recognise the importance of a curriculum that is rich with opportunities both inside and outside of the classroom which enables all children to thrive. We also want our children to learn about the world around them through meaningful first hand experiences and to care for God’s creations for future generations to come.

Developing the outdoor learning area.
When we first entered the woodland area, it was over grown with Ivy and stinging nettles. Over the weeks we began to clear the area and create learning stations. A tree survey was carried out to ensure that the woodland area is safe.
The area is now ready for children to use. Over the coming year classes will help to develop the area further during their outdoor learning sessions.
