"LEARNING OUTSIDE the CLASSROOM"

Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF)

Contextual Learning is reality-based, outside-of-the-classroom experience, within a specific context which serves as a catalyst for students to utilize their disciplinary knowledge, and which presents a forum for further formation of their personal values, faith, and professional development. Beyond the challenge of direct, meaningful experience, contextual learning requires reflection to build lasting cognitive connections. Contextual learning is useful for child development as by providing learning experiences in a context in which the are interested and motivated in they are able to achieve more. Contextual learning structures may include "running a working Allotment, growing fresh Fruit and Vegetables, and researching the produce and its uses." This definition was formulated in 2002 and presented at the annual conference proceedings of the National Society for Experiential Education.

By developing a "Working Allotment Area" you can explore the opportunities that would not be readily available to chidren and parents unless they had access to a council or community allotment which is not always accessable and due to current waiting lists.
