Spaces and Places

Scroll to explore
Welcome

Introduction

We learn more from the spaces around us than we realise. The light from the windows, the scent from the trees, the heat from the breeze; we learn and grow in the world that we know. Let us look now outside of our red brick walls, to the world of external elements that lead us through knowing and growing. The environment is often referred to as ‘the third teacher’ because of its function in holding us up and supporting the learning process.

Subconsciously, our educational journey is greatly strengthened by the physical and mental spaces that we occupy. The spaces and places that we respect and protect, that nurture our learning journey, take many forms from gardens to libraries, to boarding houses, and mornings spent rowing on the river. We exist and thrive in places beyond our classroom.

In this edition of IE we look to explore how a child thrives outside of the traditional pedagogical resources and instead to spaces, to seek and understand more about how external factors impact our Grammarians' learning. Let us look now to the spaces around us, the places that surround us and learn about what we find in them.
