Glasgow City Council Welcome to Dunard Primary School & Nursery Class

Outdoor Learning
Taking the learning outdoors is a key strategy in Glasgow’s philosophy.
 
We believe that by using our outdoor space at every opportunity we offer our pupils the opportunity to connect with nature and enhance their senses.
 
Our experience is that the pupils use this opportunity to transfer skills learned in the classroom to a real environment. They express that they feel they learn better and it is more fun.
 
We believe we have a responsibility to make the most of the outdoor environment to support the delivery of the experiences and outcomes of a Curriculum for Excellence.  This is an area that we are focussing on as a school over the next few years. 

 

In Dunard Primary and Nursery Class we are working towards taking the learning outdoors in all weathers whether during free play time or during core lessons. Please always ensure that your child has appropriate clothing at all times.
 
We have been very fortunate to have been successfully awarded £6500 by GCC towards developing this initiative in Spring 2013.
Our Parent Council and Pupil Council are also actively working together to further develop our playgrounds!
