What's happening for the week: 14th - 18th October

 

 

Outdoor Learning

Everyday the children participate in outdoor learning where they have the opportunity to discover, experiment, learn about and connect to the natural world, as well as engage in a variety of outdoor activities. We recommend that the children keep a pair of wellies (or old trainers) and a waterproof jacket in school, as well as a pair of joggers, tracksuit bottoms, leggings or waterproof bottoms which they can slip on before going outside to keep themselves dry and warm. Also the children are more than welcome to keep a spare set of clothes in school in case they become muddy or wet whilst having fun with the capacity activities in the water tray, playing with the mud kitchen or building a bug hotel!
