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.

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

Year 3 Lizards had a super day at Blagdon Estate despite the thunder storms, lightning, rain and humidity! We found out how the cows are milked, saw where they stayed in the shed and walked around the beautiful grounds of Blagdon. Sorry grown ups, if we win the lottery we are moving in to the huge house!! We came home a lot wetter and muddier than we left, but it is ok as Mrs Hammill came home even muddier... but shush don't tell anyone she fell in the mud!!! We had a super day!! #dcpslizards #dcpsstem #dcpslotc

Year 3 nailed finding fractions of numbers today!! We used the bar model to work out questions like 3/5 of 60! We even managed to link it to division. We loved working in teams to play our game inside but find our answers hidden outdoors. Mrs Hammill #dcpslizards #dcpsturtles #dcpsmaths #dcpslotc

Year 3 are having an artist in today to help us make a piece of art. Lizards are starting the project and Turtles are finishing it. What will those bamboo sticks and wood become? You'll find out this afternoon.... #dcpslizards #dcpsturtles #dcpslotc #dcpstopic #dcpsstem

A few snippets from Reception woodland project last week. The heavy rain before our visit made everything look different and a lot more soggy (fun). Hope you all notice we had the only dry day of the week! The sun smiles on Denbigh! #dcpseyfs #dcpsladybird #dcpsbutterfly #dcpslotc

After a mind-blowing experience at the Science Museum, we are now enjoying our pre-theatre meal at Pizza Express. The children and staff have certainly worked up an appetite! #dcpslions #dcpstigers #dcpsSTEM #dcpsLoTC

It was far too much of a nice day to be stuck inside so year 5 Whales took their topic learning outside. We planned a mission to Mars and could only take 6 things with us! #dcpswhale #dcpslotc
