Outdoor Education

We are lucky at Waberthwaite C of E Primary School to be able to offer our pupils the opportunity to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through regular hands-on learning experiences. 

Class 3:

In Cycle A: 'Waber Around!' In the summer term, we carry out a weekly visit to different locations for our RE, history and cross curricular work through a half term based around exploration. We visit different vantage points in the area to investigate evidence of the anglo-saxons in our locality. We also consider the human and physical geography of the area and how this has developed over time. We visit a number of our parish churches and some further afield and carry out a comparison between them and the Christian art work within them.

Class 3:

In Cycle C: Wabcaster Wednesday! In the summer term, we deliver a weekly fully skills-based curriculum through an immersive classroom based in the grounds of Muncaster Castle. This takes place weekly, from the middle of May until July; empowering the children to creatively utilise and further develop both their academic knowledge and skills - taking learning from the school site into real-life situations.

We explore the development of the site of the castle through history in the context of national and world history, working in collaboration with the curators at the castle; putting our compass and map reading skills into practice around the castle grounds and surrounding areas; honing our drawing and painting skills to create artwork for display both in school and the castle; exploring the biodiversity thriving in our local area AND MORE!

If you have any further queries, you can contact our school administrator, Mrs Yvonne Hey, in a number of ways.
