We are a Hampshire 'Trailblazer' school!
Promoting Everyday Outdoor Learning
This is Hampshire's own version of Forest School.
Trailblazer is an exciting outdoor learning resource for young people of all ages, in Hampshire, Portsmouth, Southampton, the Isle of Wight and West Berkshire. With training, activities, resources and experience-sharing opportunities, Trailblazer supports you to embed curriculum teaching, outside, using your school grounds.
Our Trailblazer Leaders are:
Miss Apsey and Miss Campbell

Outdoor Learning Day!
"Outdoor Classroom/Learning Day is a global movement to inspire and celebrate outdoor play and learning, at home and at school." (outdoorclassroomday.org)
"Did you know that children are spending less time outdoors than ever before and this is affecting their health, wellbeing and development. Time outdoors – on Outdoor Classroom Day and every day – will make children happier and healthier, as well as equipping them with the skills they need for life." (outdoorclassroomday.org)
The children at Bishops Waltham Infant School are pleased to be joining in with the first of two Outdoor Classroom Days where they will be exploring the different ways we can learn and enjoy the outside environment.
Miss Campbell and Miss Apsey have set the children the challenge to spend at least an hour outside on this day completing different outdoor challenges. Examples of these activities include making a seed bomb, creating a class picture with natural resources and using things they find outside to create their name.
See the video below shared with the children to introduce them to Outdoor Learning Day:

TrailBlazers at Home!
Learning outside doesn't have to just be Monday to Friday. Why not have a go at carrying on your learning outside out of school hours too!
