The benefits of Outdoor learning

Otter Class at Gore Farm

Children from Trent Young's CE Primary School in Dorset have had the exciting opportunity to experience outdoor learning due to the invitation of a local farmer and his wife to their working farm, Gore Farm. 

Stuart and Tessa Casely have been opening up the doors of Gore Farm, in Trent, Sherborne, to pupils whose education has been interrupted by the coronavirus pandemic. 
Students at Trent Young’s CE Primary School have benefited from the learning opportunities offered by Gore Farm, which is part of The Ernest Cook Trust educational charity, for years.
The story featured in the local South West Farmer publication giving full detail of the childrens' visit. It has also been featured in the ITV local news also. 

Sherril Atkins, headteacher at Trent Young’s CE Primary School, said: “The help from the Gore Farm Team and The Ernest Cook Trust has been invaluable in helping us deal with the challenges of the last few months, and we are incredibly grateful to them ... ... the activities have played a huge part in helping children settle back into school, re-establish friendships and reduce anxiety levels."
