All Dunannie children have daily opportunities to play outside whatever the weather usually in the playground and orchard.

An outdoor classroom has been created and the children benefit from having an Outdoor Work teacher with timetabled opportunities to explore our own environment and the Bedales estate, extend learning from other curriculum areas such as mini-beast hunting, observation of the seasons, lifecycles of plants, trees and animals and using natural spaces and objects for drawing and writing.

Dunannie children are enthusiastic gardeners and plant, grow and eat a variety of fruits and vegetables in the Nursery garden, the greenhouse and the vegetable plots.
