Magdalen Experience


The Magdalen ProjectThere is nowhere quite like The Magdalen Project, an environmental education centre situated on an organic farm in beautiful countryside on the Somerset/Dorset border, only a short distance from the dramatic Jurassic coast.

The Magdalen Project is both a resource for learning about the environment and sustainable living and a place for enjoyment, entertainment and experience for visitors of all ages, backgrounds and abilities.We have spent 3 days this last week at the Magdalen Project, as part of our PGCE Global Dimension module.  It has been an exciting and exhilarating experience, learning about how valuable outdoor learning is for children.  To learn an appreciation for nature, animals and how to develop survival skills can really bring a child out of their shell, as not all children will learn at their best in a cramped classroom.  The outdoor classroom is an alternative to learn many curriculum subjects like music, maths, english, science, drama, sports and more.

I will post a video here very soon of our experience!
