Learning Outside the Classroom

We believe that well organised school trips and visits, linked closely to curriculum goals are an excellent way to expand on educational opportunities by taking learning beyond the classroom.

Whilst it is a well-known fact that learning outside the classroom is inspiring and motivating for all children and young people, at Wargrave House School it is recognised that it is essential that children and young people with autism have the opportunity to learn and practice skills in other environments.

Educational visits are organised to support learning objectives in specific curriculum areas. However, in addition to this, structured teaching takes place in a variety of environments during regular timetabled activities.

Functional and practical application of life skills are developed through local community access.

We work in partnership with The Puddle Project to create learning opportunities that extend beyond the classroom environment.

A wide range of cultural capital experiences also allow our learners to see the wider world in a meaningful manner. Learning outside the classroom is designed to use the natural environment to impact positively on the health and well-being of our young people. The experience offers a larger, learning environment outside the confines of the classroom with natural light and reduced environmental stress factors e.g. bright lights. Functional and practical application of life skills are developed through local community access.
