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.

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

Year 5 Dolphins made Anglo-Saxon brooches at Churchill this morning. We made them by using felt and applying pressure to our materials to create their shape. We think they look pretty good! #dcpsdt #dcpsdolphin #dcpslotc

Let's all jump in muddy puddles! Today Nursery seemed to be in competition with each other to see who could get the muddiest! And it was so much fun! We loved throwing sticks into the water and seeing who could make the biggest splash, jumping in muddy puddles, climbing mountains and getting stuck in the mud. We found some treasure maps as we searched for the magic key to open the cottage and were super safe as we lit the fire and had a snack around the campfire. What a busy day! We cannot wait to go back #dcpscaterpillar #dcpseyfs #dcpslotc

Reception had a great time at Forest Schools this week, collecting minibeasts, becoming archaeologists, princesses, soldiers and even Ninja Turtles! Some children decided to become pirates and dig for treasure in the soil. Towards the end of the session, the children played pooh-sticks and even got to see a woodchipper in action! #dcpsladybird #dcpsbutterfly #dcpseyfs #dcpslotc
