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.

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

We have had another fantastic week at forest school. The children have been doing some leaf printing on some fabric, become bird watchers and mini-beast hunters and even found time to build dens, climb trees and create campfires. Bear Grylls eat your heart out! We can't wait to go back! #dcpscaterpillar #dcpslotc #dcpseyfs

Year 1 Polar Bears had a great time venturing outdoors yesterday to make bird feeders. We have been Going Wild in the UK this week and this was a great way to help wildlife in our local environment. #dcpspolarbear #dcpslotc

The Giraffes spent their afternoon practising our Talk for Writing actions today. We took our learning outdoors and worked together to learn our adventure story off by heart. Why don't you ask us to give you a snippet of the story? Miss Stephenson #dcpsgiraffe #dcpsliteracy #dcpsLOTC

Year 5/6 have been working hard during gardening club over the past few weeks. We have been working on weeding the planters on the Key Stage 2 yard so they are ready for the vegetables and plants that we have been growing. So far, we have grown some tomatoes, cucumbers, spring onions and sunflowers. We love checking on them every day to see how they have grown! Miss Smith #dcpslotc #dcpsdolphin #dcpswhale #dcpslion

Reception had a fantastic day in the woods yesterday. We were exploring using magnifying glasses and binoculars to help us see the amazing things that are a little hidden from view. We explored leaves, shoots and flowers on the ground, looked for patterns in nature and then used the binoculars to see what was happening above our heads. We spotted squirrels and birds high over our heads. We were amazed that, on such a sunny day, our little area was so shady. All the trees have grown leaves and so the we are sheltered from the sun. We also got to have a splash in the stream, some of us even tried to build bridges to get across without getting our feet wet! Some of us splashed so much we got soggy socks! #dcpseyfs #dcpsladybird #dcpsbutterfly #dcpslotc

Wow! What an amazing afternoon we had at Forest Schools today! Children used binoculars and magnifying glasses to find and explore different areas of the park. Some children braved the stream, using buckets to transfer water, splash and make perfume! #dcpsladybird #dcpsbutterfly #dcpseyfs #dcpslotc

Year 5 rounded off STEM week by using the MUGAs to help us create our very own solar system. We used rolls of toilet paper to help show the relative distances between the different planets and the Sun. It really helped us understand the distances between the planets themselves too and why some planets are much colder than others. #dcpsdolphin #dcpswhale #dcpsstem #dcpslotc

It was like Reception were never away from forest schools when they returned this week! Some children used potato peelers and even a saw to cut and peel branches they had found. Others found logs and other natural resources to build tree houses and fairy dens. And we even got lucky with the weather! Whoop whoop! #dcpsladybird #dcpsbutterfly #dcpseyfs #dcpslotc

Another fantastic day in the woods. We were introduced to saws and peelers today as we investigated what was under the bark on trees. We had some fantastic language, one child thought the peeled stick smelt like caterpillars! We are going to hunt for a caterpillar next week so we can compare! Obviously lots of tree climbing, we are getting very adventurous and great at deciding the level of risk for ourselves. We also are fantastic at working together to achieve things, such as moving heavy branches, building dens and using tools. #dcpslotc #dcpseyfs #dcpsladybird #dcpsbutterfly

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
