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.

Year 3 had an awesome time at the Rising Sun learning about the Stone Age. We got take grind flour, make, cook and eat bread as well as den building. The children were so enthusiastic and loved every minute of it #dcpsturtle #dcpslotc #dcpstopic #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

Today Y2 were all about taking their learning outside (it’s a shame we picked the chilliest day of the term so far to do it but the children showed off their resilience and braved the elements regardless). We started our morning with applying our learning about adding two numbers together using a column method to playing a game. We had to add the scores together to find out who won the game. This afternoon we practiced our spellings by challenging our partner to spell a word using water and paintbrushes. Not only great fun but it really got us thinking about using the spelling patterns we knew to spell a different word. Fantastic learning from all the Dinos. #dcpsdinosaur #dcpsmaths #dcpsenglish #dcpslotc #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

Reception had another fantastic trip to the woods on Wednesday. We collected and observed different types of leaves and even made our own leaf wands (or leaf kebabs as Mrs Clark referred to them as!) We also discovered ‘giant dinosaur footprints’ and showed no fear climbing trees. #dcpsEYFS #dcpsladybird #dcpsbutterfly #dcpsLOTC ... See MoreSee Less
Year 5 enjoyed their Maths outdoors earlier in the week. Their focus was place value and timetables. They had to answer lots of questions; run around lots if their number was the answer to the question and they managed to win lots of dojos too! #dcpsdolphin #dcpswhale #dcpslotc #dcpsmaths #dcpscore ...

Year 5 plotted the distances of the planets using the correct scale. They had to use both their Maths and Science skills to work out how far away their planet was from the sun. #dcpscore #dcpsstem #dcpsmaths #dcpslotc #dcpsdolphin ... See MoreSee Less
The Whales had an amazing STEM lesson outside, using their knowledge of the solar system to plot how far away the planets are from the sun. The children had to show the distance relative to the size of a toilet roll square! They all enjoyed it and showed amazing teamwork skills! Well done Whales #dcpswhale #dcpsstem #dcpslotc #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less
Last week the Dinos explored micro habitats, looking at which mini beasts like to live there. We didn’t let a little thing like rain stop our scientific enquiry and learned lots about why some creatures prefer different habitats to others. #dcpsdinosaur #dcpsstem #dcpscore #dcpslotc ...

The fully time Nursery have enjoyed exploring the big field this week. We have been digging for treasure in the sandpit and made the most delicious mud pies in our outdoor kitchen by investigating how much water we should add to make the perfect consistency.
Digging on a large scale is great for building the children’s upper body strength which is essential before getting the children to draw and write. We also practise our balancing skills as we used the balance bikes to go around the track and explored our trim trail.
Inside we have been making our own potions using mint and lavender from our nursery garden and explored a range of natural materials. #dcpseyfs #dcpscaterpillar #dcps30hours #dcpslotc #dcpsliteracy #dcpsSTEM ... See MoreSee Less

Reception’s second trip to the woods was yesterday. This means the majority of children have been and we will catch up with anyone who was absent next week. The children had an amazing time looking for signs of Autumn, conker hunting, looking for bugs, examining fungi and rolling down the hill! It was a little bit muddy! #dcpseyfs #dcpsladybird #dcpsbutterfly #dcpslotc ... See MoreSee Less
Y2 Dragons have just had a STEM week. We have been learning about which insects live in the different micro habitats in our local area. We went into our yard to see which insects we could find in the micro habitats. We found snails, spiders, worms, ants and many more! 🪱 🕷 🐌 🪰 🐜 #dcpscore #dcpsdragon #dcpslotc #dcpsstem ...

Year 2 Dragons were so busy last week! We had such a fantastic day with a workshop delivered by Steve from Starchaser. The children got to make and fly their own rockets. They went to heights we didn’t think was possible and that the camera couldn’t catch! 🌠🚀 #dcpsdragon #dcpscore #dcpsstem #dcpstopic #dcpslotc ... See MoreSee Less
