At the end of May the primary classes had an outdoor learning day. All involved had a great day, despite the weather.

Our KS2 classes participated in den making, constructing forts with Brik-A-Bloks, stone art and water channelling. Through these activities the children developed their creativity, communication and problem-solving skills. The children were also able to explore our nature reserve and develop their ability to work as part of a team.

The younger classes had the opportunity to participate in water play, including water channelling, constructing towers, stone art and exploring the mud kitchen and shop in the nature reserve. Some of the skills that were developed through these activities were their imagination, communication, problem-solving and creativity but they also had the opportunity to explore different sensory stimuli in nature as they made mud pies using mud, water, flowers, sticks, stones, bark and leaves.
