Hello! Thank you for visiting our page. We are a mixed Form 2 & 3 class. Our class is a vibrant place to learn, so please visit our page to find out more about what we are learning!
Forms 2 and 3 spent time getting to know their younger peers by spending time reading to them.
Team work- working together and putting together a puzzle.
Pupils in Reception, Form1 , Form 2 and 3 spend their Tuesday afternoons busy learning outdoors!
Outdoor Learning is active learning in the outdoors
In Outdoor Learning pupils learn through what they do, through what they encounter and through what they discover. Pupils learn about the outdoors, themselves and each other, while also learning outdoor skills. Active learning readily develops the learning skills of enquiry, experiment, feedback, reflection, review and cooperative learning.
Outdoor Learning is real learning
Not only does Outdoor Learning happen in the natural environments where participants can see, hear, touch and smell the real thing, it also happens in an arena where actions have real results and consequences. Outdoor Learning can help to bring many school subjects alive while also providing experiential opportunities for fulfilling the National Curriculum aim “to enable pupils to respond positively to opportunities, challenges and responsibilities, to manage risk and to cope with change and adversity.”
Pupils in Reception and Form one, have been learning all about clay, and finding answers to questions like where does it come from? What is it used for? Form 2 and 3 have been learning all about rocks and soil. They have been asking questions such as- How were rocks formed? Are all rocks hard?
In our Outdoor learning session pupils were encouraged to explore their environment, buddy up with a peer and make cay faces to then attach to tree trunks. They found twigs- to be great tools to carve and mark make and berries and leaves fantastic resources to use to add details and features to their clay faces.
Rocks and minerals are important for learning about earth materials, structure, and systems. Studying these natural objects incorporates an understanding of earth science. Pupils in Form2 and 3 are studying fossils and are exploring what they are and how they were formed.
