THE DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE WILL VISIT ROBIN HOOD PRIMARY SCHOOL TO CELEBRATE TEN YEARS OF THE ROYAL HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY CAMPAIGN FOR SCHOOL GARDENING

London

Wednesday 29th November

The Duchess of Cambridge will visit Robin Hood Primary School to celebrate their work with the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Campaign for School Gardening.

The RHS Campaign for School Gardening, now marking ten years, inspires and supports schools to provide children with gardening opportunities to enhance their skills and boost their development. The RHS’s work with schools has shown benefits for children’s physical and mental well-being, and building life skills such as confidence, teamwork and communication.

During the visit, The Duchess will get a briefing on the RHS nation-wide campaign and hear about the benefits of learning outside from Robin Hood Primary School. Her Royal Highness will then join children in activities in the outdoor learning area and sensory garden and celebrate the 34,000 schools and groups now engaged in gardening through the campaign.

Robin Hood Primary School has developed a whole-school, progressive outdoor learning curriculum with support from the RHS. Children have access to a range of outdoor classrooms in the woodland setting including a purpose built Outdoor Learning Area and Sensory Garden. This outdoor learning gives children an opportunity to explore, consolidate and develop their knowledge and understanding of the ever-changing natural environment. The activities are created to inspire their curiosity, stimulate their senses and through challenging, yet achievable tasks using various real tools and natural resources, bring learning to life.

Sessions aim to encourage and inspire children to develop their personal, social and emotional skills through participation in tasks and activities that are both challenging and achievable. Helping to develop their emotional intelligence, empathy and communication enables children to manage their emotions effectively.
