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.

What a fantastic day for the Nursery Big Toddle! We had great fun raising money for Barnardos. We demonstrated our football skills, played a range of team games, showed off our dance moves and even made ourselves a healthy snack. Could we have any remaining sponsor forms in by Friday please. Thank you. #dcpscaterpillar #dcpseyfs #dcpslotc #dcpspe

Year 5 Dolphins have had a lovely morning at Churchill developing our sewing skills. We used different stencils to make flowers out of materials including felt and denim. We then sewed on beads and buttons to add decorations to our flowers to make our own class project - a beautiful bouquet. #dcpsdolphin #dcpsdt #dcpslotc

"Honey.......I shrunk the kids!!!!!!"
The Dinosaurs had a wee adventure this morning when they were shrunk to the size of a minibeast! We struggled through the vast jungle (the school field), crossed an ocean (a puddle), climbed the tallest of trees (a twig) and scaled mountains (pebbles). The story writing that came from this was epic! #dcpsdinosaurs #dcpsSTEM #dcpslotc

The Dinos took their STEM learning outside this afternoon as they became expert architects and engineers, designing and building habitats for their very own invented mini beasts. We had leaf doormats, bird feather beds and even a stone helipad. I was so impressed with the creativity and ingenuity the children displayed. Mrs Candlish #dcpsdinosaurs #dcpsSTEM #dcpslotc

This afternoon the Dinos practiced their map reading skills. They used an aerial photograph of the yard to locate 10 items. It was trickier than we thought but with a dash of team work we cracked it. #dcpsdinosaurs #dcpslotc ... See MoreSee Less

Year 5 Dolphins loved having our grandparent visitors in class this morning. We were able to find out so much more about what Wallsend used to be like and how the area has changed over the years. We loved talking to them and learning out about the different industries such as mining and the shipyards. #dcpsdolphin #dcpshistory #dcpslotc

Year 1 Polar Bears have had an amazing day for Heritage Day. We have learnt loads from our kind Grandparents and had a great time performing for them whilst they had their afternoon tea. We also spent our afternoon doing a local area study using maps and orienteering. We looked at some of houses on Google Maps and how they have changed since the photos were taken. A fantastic day. Well done Polar Bears! #dcpspolarbear #dcpslotc #dcpshistory #dcpsict

Year 5 spent the afternoon with Richard learning about the history of the coal mines. We followed the story of a real boy from Wallsend who died down the mine in 1922. We learnt about the system of coal mining, how dangerous it was and the different jobs and equipment that was needed. We even got to touch some real artefacts from the time. #dcpswhale #dcpsdolphin #dcpslotc #dcpshistory

Year 2 Dinos enjoyed talking to the grandparents this afternoon. We found out about what their childhood was like and compared it to our own. We were very surprised to learn that there wasn't the same technology as we are used to. They also told us about people they knew who worked in a mine and in the shipyards. It was very interesting. We think our grandparents are totally awesome.

Y2 Dinos have spent the morning exploring their local area via Google Maps. We located our school on a map and then spotted all the physical features we could see in the nearby area. From there we looked more closely at our school grounds. This afternoon we will be drawing our own maps then doing a bit of orienteering.

Another day, another trip for Year 5 Dolphins. We spent the morning exploring Alnwick castle and taking part in an alchemist workshop. We learned all about the different cures used to treat illnesses in Medieval times and then made our own soap. In the afternoon, we visited Broxfield farm. We saw the bulls and cows, discovered how beans are grown and fed Danny the lamb. An amazing time was had by all - we had so much fun! Miss Smith #dcpsdolphin #dcpslotc

Another fantastic trip today with Year 5 Whales to Broxfield Farm and Alnwick Castle. We saw the cows and bulls then fed a lamb whilst finding out about how the farm provides us with food. We then went to the castle to take part in an Alchemist workshop to learn how illnesses were treated in the Middle Ages. We even made our own medieval soap! What a great day and behaviour was outstanding! Well done Whales! #dcpswhale #dcpslotc

Wow! What a wet and wild morning it was for Forest Schools on Wednesday. Unfortunately we didn't get many photos of group 3 due to the weather but the children loved it regardless, they were not phased by the thunder/rain in the slightest. Group 4 on the other hand were luckier to have a dry session! An afternoon of mini beast hunting, egg discoveries and den building were on the cards. #dcpsladybird #dcpsbutterfly #dcpseyfs #dcpslotc
