Learning Outside the Classroom (LOtC)

LOtC Mission Statement

LOtC Mission Statement

 

Our school is a special place where children grow and learn.  We believe that this growth and learning should surpass the walls of the classroom and continue into the outdoor areas of the school.  We believe that every child should have regular access to learning outside the classroom which provides stimulating and challenging experiences, within and beyond the classroom.  We aim to provide positive opportunities for interaction with the environment which inspires the resilient, adventurous and curious learners of the future.

Here are some more pictures from this weeks forest school. The Nursery children loved climbing the steep hills and demonstrated their problem solving skills as the looked for the safest route up and down the hill. They even used some tree roots to help pull them up. Bear Grylls would be proud #dcpscaterpillar #dcpseyfs #dcpslotc

We had lots of fun in forest school this week. We made our own paint using mud,clay and some wild garlic leaves and used these to paint our own pictures. We went on search for some mini beasts and looked at them closely using magnifying glasses. We built our own dens and had lots of fun creating our own mud slide down a really steep hill #dcpscaterpillar #dcpseyfs #dcpslotc

Reception children 'hopped to it' (sorry! Haha) this morning during an Easter egg hunt in the outdoor yard. They worked in pairs to read clues the Easter bunny had left them to find where the eggs were hidden. They used positional language to describe where they were, counted the total number of eggs they found and even sorted them into colours. An 'eggciting' maths morning. #dcpsladybird #dcpsbutterfly #dcpseyfs #dcpsmaths #dcpslotc

Year 5 Dolphins completed their pizza making this morning at Churchill. Some of us even won awards for our creativity, cooking skills and helpfulness. They all looked absolutely delicious! Miss Smith #dcpsdolphin #dcpslotc #dcpsdt

Year 5 Dolphins had a fantastic morning at Churchill yesterday. We made our own pizza dough from scratch! We learned all about the science behind making pizzas and how the yeast will help our dough to rise. A lot of mess but a lot of fun! We can't wait to go back on Monday to add our toppings and cook them. Miss Smith #dcpsdolphin #dcpslotc #dcpsdt

Year 5 Dolphins have had a Viking filled day! We spent the morning in our Viking workshop learning all about the stories behind the different gods and goddesses, what life would have been like at home and how the warriors went into battle. We even re-enacted our own battle which was pretty terrifying! We then spent the afternoon making our own treasure maps, using co-ordinates to plot key places during the Viking period.

Year 5 Whales have had a fabulous day emerging themselves in the ways of the Vikings. This morning we created ancient Viking treasure maps and made our own longboats. This afternoon we took part in a Viking workshop where we learned about the beliefs of the Vikings, helping to act out some of their most favourite stories. We then ended by reenacting a Viking battle! We found out that during a Viking battle it would be very hard to tell who was the enemy and who was in your side! #dcpswhales #dcpshistory #dcpslotc

We are going on a bear hunt. We are going to catch a big one. What a beautiful day. We are not scared... Uh oh mud! Lots and lots of mud. Let's all jump in! Nursery loved playing in the mud at forest school this week we even used it to paint the trees and ourselves. The children went in the three bears cottage and even made them some porridge as goldilocks had eaten it all up again #dcpscaterpillar #dcpseyfs #dcpslotc

Year 5 Whales had a great School Games Day. As well as learning about the amount of sugar in foods and what this can do to our bodies, we had another Google Expedition to the Borneo Rainforest and then took part in sports games with Tyne Met. Lots of team work and resilience shown today! Ask us what the healthiest choice is for breakfast - we have all the facts! #dcpswhale #dcpslotc #dcpsteam

Year 1 Polar Bears had the most amazing STEM week last week looking at Changes. We took part in a number of experiments and worked out a lot of scientific explanations. Have a look at some of our experiments and see if you can work out the science behind the change! #dcpsSTEM #dcpspolarbear #dcpslotc
