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.

All looked like they had a great time !

Year 5 had a fantastic Maths lesson applying all of their mathematical skills from this year. The children had a range of challenges for the yard and the car park and they had to use their knowledge to solve them. They were great! #dcpswhale #dcpsdolphin #dcpscore #dcpslotc #dcpsmaths ...

Last visit to the woods this week and what a lovely time we have had. We have learnt so much this week. We are so pleased we all finally got to go and explore. #dcpsEYFS #dcpsbutterfly #dcpsladybird #dcpslotc #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

Another fantastic visit to the woods. We feed the ducks and spotted some ducklings, jumped in muddy puddles left over from the rain the day before, we found lots a tiny conkers that were knocked of the trees by the rain. We played hide and seek, rolled down hills and got exceptionally muddy! #dcpsEYFS #dcpsladybird #dcpsbutterfly #dcpslotc ... See MoreSee Less

Year 6 made the most of the gorgeous weather last week and enjoyed some messy art outside. They loved getting stuck in and letting their creative juices flow. Miss Stephenson #DCPStiger #dcpslion #dcpscore #dcpslotc #dcpsart ... See MoreSee Less

Last week, Year 6 were working with The Eagles to develop their basketball skills. We definitely have some future basketball stars in the making! #dcpscore #dcpspe #DCPStiger #dcpslotc #dcpslion ... See MoreSee Less

On Monday, the year 6 Tigers had a fantastic music session putting all of their samba rhythms together. 5 different sections playing together to create a fantastic sound! Miss Stephenson #dcpslotc #dcpscore #dcpsmusic #DCPStiger ... See MoreSee Less

We didn’t let a little thing like rain stop us having a great time in the woods today. We went to feed the ducks, spotted some ducklings and made friends with them. We played Poohsticks, dropping sticks into the burn and seeing which emerged under the bridge first. We made a dry den, played Stuck in the Mud, made our own swing and JUMPED IN HUGE PUDDLES! It was amazing! We loved every minute! #dcpseyfs #dcpsladybird #dcpsbutterfly #dcpslotc #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

This afternoon our Year 2 children took part in a spot of orienteering and teamwork. The Dragons’ task was to use their map reading skills to locate 8 points where there would find hidden letters. These then spelt out a word when rearranged. The Dinos’ had to work together as a team to put together an aerial photograph of the school. It sounds simple enough but was made harder by the fact that the pieces were in an envelope and only one could be retrieved at a time. #dcpsdragon #dcpsdinosaur #dcpscore #dcpslotc #dcpspe ...

A fantastic first trip to the woods for these Reception boys and girls. Making crowns, climbing trees, rolling down hills, collecting leaves and making observations. The boys and girls had an amazing time and can’t wait to get back. #dcpseyfs #dcpsladybird #dcpsbutterfly #dcpslotc ... See MoreSee Less

Some of the children in Reception enjoyed their final session of three in the woods this week and last. Creating transitional art, feeding the ducks and exploring the woods. We have learnt so much the last three visits. #dcpsEYFS #dcpsladybird #dcpsbutterfly #dcpslotc #dcpsstem #dcpsart ... See MoreSee Less
