Immersive Environments

At Portfield, we believe that children learn most effectively when they are able to collaborate and make choices for themselves. Our learning environments serve a vital role in enabling children to develop these skills and in immersing them in their topics. In our school, you will find children enjoying many exciting learning zones from hobbit houses to World War 1 trenches. Here, they will often have the choice of how they learn, with some children choosing to stand, some sit and some lie down. Our children are encouraged to explore how they learn best and to make decisions about when it is appropriate to work in different ways. We believe this will equip them to be creative, independent children who love learning!
