Outdoor Learning (Y3.4)

We are very excited to relaunch our outdoor learning provision with Year 3 and Year 4 during the second half of the Spring Term.


Children will be completing outdoor learning based activities on Tuesday mornings with Mrs Gregorious (a teacher within the DLPT).

Campfires and s'mores! What a fantastic way to end the term of Forest School! The children had amazing fun today with our campfire, toasting marshmallows and tucking into s'mores. Absolutely delicious (even the staff had a cheeky sample!) They also loved creating their own Forest School name badges. We loved seeing their creativity and artistic skills come to life. It has been wonderful to see the children get so stuck into Forest School this term.

This week, the children explored crafting using clay. They cut out shapes and engraved patterns from nature on them. All classes really enjoyed the gratitude scavenger hunt. This is where they found things in nature that made them smile, was their favourite colour, was interesting to look at, among many other things. As always, we have been so impressed with how the children get stuck into all of the activities.

Even the rain didn't stop us this week! We battled the elements this week and explored the overgrown area behind the conifer trees at the back of the field. They all had such a fab time and didn't mind the rain! Scrambling through bushes, they began to clear and tidy the area. As part of Science week, the children then started to plan what they would like the area to look like. We loved all of their imagination and ideas!


Tuesday 5th March

The children threw themselves into Forest School again this week. They continued to learn about fires and had another go at fire lighting. Once again, they went to battle with the allotment beds weeding and digging to prepare them for growing. We saw them also take great care over making nature bracelets from things they found on the fields. Finally, they really enjoyed making special Mother's Day twig pots to take home.


Tuesday 27th February

Today was our first Forest School session. We were so impressed with how the children embraced everything that we did within the session. They started off completing a blindfold challenge with a partner trying to work out where they had led each other. Mrs Gregorious also showed them how to use the fire lighting equipment. They also began the almighty task of weeding and clearing our allotment beds. We are going to prepare them then grow our own vegetables.
