Learning Outside the Classroom

Year 6 Tigers ended their week on a high on Friday as they took to the sea on surfboards.
The sun was shining, their resilience was on top form and their faces shone with happiness. What a fantastic time they had working together and learning new skills. #dcpslotc #funinthesun #adventurous

Year 5 also visited Broxfield Farm today. Whilst we were there, we were lucky enough to go on a tractor trailer ride into the fields to learn all about the cows and their life cycles. We then went into the barn to learn about how different crops are grown and produced. We had a go at making our own flour using the flour mills. What a brilliant way to end a fantastic day! #dcpsdolphin #dcpslotc #dcpsstem ... See MoreSee Less
Year 5 loved visiting Alnwick Castle today despite the dodgy weather! We learned all about medieval life in a castle including investigating the different job roles that we could have had in those times. We even had a go at making our own herbal soap in an artisan’s workshop and then spent some time exploring the grounds and the museums. #dcpsdolphin #dcpslotc #dcpshistory ... See MoreSee Less
More of Year 5’s visit today. We spent our afternoon exploring the Science Centre and its exhibit - Game On. We loved trying out the retro games especially as we are currently working on creating our own version of Pac Man as part of our computing topic! #dcpsdolphin #dcpsstem #dcpscomputing #dcpslotc ...

Year 5 had a fantastic day at the Centre for Life. We visited the planetarium to learn all about the constellations and the different planets in our solar system, followed by a Destination Space workshop where we took charge of robotic arms and discovered some of the challenges of wearing a spacesuit. We couldn’t believe that astronauts have to wear nappies on a spacewalk! #dcpsdolphin #dcpsstem #dcpslotc ... See MoreSee Less

Year 1 Polar Bears had another fantastic trip to Wallsend Park. We explored the changes from Autumn to Summer, created pieces of artwork with leaves and learnt all about different trees and how to identify them.
Their behaviour was outstanding all day! Well done Polar Bears.
