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.

The Y2 Dinos paid a visit to St Mary’s Church last week to see what it would be like for a baby to be baptised. Reverend Kim kindly baptised Kiki Lala alongside her “parents” and “godparents”. The children had loads of questions and loved seeing first hand what they’d learned about in class. #dcpsdinosaur #dcpsre #dcpslotc #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

The full time nursery children loved toasting their marshmallows over a real fire today in Nursery. I was so impressed at how well the children had remembered our fire pit rules from last week and they did an amazing job keeping themselves safe. Today we also made our own marshmallow play dough and enjoyed using the diggers to fill and empty their trucks with cereal #dcpsEYFS #dcps30hours #dcpscaterpillar #dcpspshe #dcpslotc #dcpsstem ...

This week the full time Nursery children helped our puppet Olly plan his first camping trip. We planned everything he might need to bring with him on his camping trip and had fun making our own campfire crafts. The children helped set up his tent and went fishing in our water tray. We gathered sticks for our campfire and discussed how we would keep ourselves safe around a campfire as we pretended to toast some marshmallows. We are looking forward to next week when we will actually toast some marshmallows around our campfire for real #dcpsEYFS #dcpscaterpillar #dcps30hours #dcpslotc #dcpscore #dcpspshe ...

Amazing couldn’t wish for a better school nursery for my little Ashton 💜

After spotting some ice on the yard last week the full time nursery children have loved investigating what ice is and where it comes from. They were set the challenge to free some toys stuck in the ice as they investigated how they could melt the ice the fastest using either hot or cold water or sprinkling salt on it. We had fun painting with ice and noticed that our paper was getting very wet. After discovering that ice is made by freezing water the children decided to make their own ice lollies using a range of fruit juices and smoothies. We of course had to try a range of juices before deciding on what flavour we would like our lolly to be. Today we enjoyed our lollies as part of our snack time which tasted amazing! The nursery children were so impressed with their efforts they have asked to make ice cream next week. #dcpsEYFS #dcpscaterpillar #dcps30hours #dcpsstem #dcpscore #dcpslotc ... See MoreSee Less

This week in nursery we have been exploring shape. The full time nursery children began by exploring circles. We threaded circles, printing with circles and even made large circles in the air with ribbon or on a large sheet of paper. We explored the properties of circles as we noticed the tyres outside where round and found that they were the perfect shape for rolling so we set ourselves the challenge to see who could roll their tyre the furthest. We then looked at other shapes and made our own shape monsters. Today we made some shape biscuits which were delicious! #dcpsEYFS #dcpscaterpillar #dcps30hours #dcpsmaths #dcpslotc #dcpscore ...

Year 6 visited Safetyworks yesterday afternoon to learn about how we can keep ourselves safe in different situations inside and outside of the home. We took part in a range of different scenarios where we had to decide what to do and how the emergency services can help us. We learned lots of helpful tips that will help to keep us safe in the future! #dcpslion #dcpspshe #dcpscore #dcpslotc ... See MoreSee Less

Dolphins enjoyed their last biking session this week. They enjoyed cycling to the Royal Quays and seeing the ship at the port. #dcpsdolphin #dcpspe #dcpscore #dcpslotc ... See MoreSee Less
