Outdoor Classroom Day

Pupils from Classes 1,2 and 3 enjoyed a busy, action packed Outdoor Classroom Day today.

Outdoor Classroom Day is a global campaign to celebrate and inspire outdoor learning and play. On the day, thousands of schools around the world take lessons outdoors and prioritise playtime. In 2017, over 2.3 million children worldwide took part, more than 580,000 of those were in the UK and Ireland. 

Outdoor learning improves children’s healthengages them with learning and leads to a greater connection with nature. Play not only teaches critical life skills such as resilienceteamwork and creativity, but is central to children’s enjoyment of childhood. 

Our children worked with staff, parents and governors to take part in a range of exciting outdoor activities.

 

 

Fire Safety

Fireman Lee came in to work with Classes 2 and 5 this morning.

In Class 5 we thought about Fire Safety plans and talked about what to do in the event of a fire.

We created plans for our own houses – after school we will be sharing these with our families.

Class 5 Colby Trip

Our Trip to Colby Woodland Gardens 

Today we went to Colby Woodland Gardens! We had a great time pond dipping and doing an experiment on how fast the water in the river flowed. 

Firstly, we did a fun experiment on how fast the water in the river flowed. We measured a ten  meter stretch down the river. We had one person on the stopwatch and another person ready to shout STOP! We then let Mack a Duck (who was a toy duck) down the river and he  got off to a good-ish start but Mack a Duck ended up crashing (RIP Mack a Duck). But our experiment did end up working! (phew).                                                  

After our funny experiment with a bit of failure we went over to a wider part of the river. We did some kick sampling and we checked out what we found by identifying them with a key. It was fun but messy at the same time! 

After we went in the river we went back to the bus to get our food to eat. 

After that we were off! (sadly it was not the end of the school day and we had to do work.)
