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 first group of Year 6 Lions had a fantastic time surfing at Tynemouth beach this week. They spent their morning learning how to ride the waves of the North Sea and how to do so safely. They all showed amazing resilience and bravery when trying something new. #dcpslion #dcpslotc #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

Year 4 have had a great morning exploring angles around the school. We had to look at different parts of the school and identify if they were acute, obtuse or right angles. #dcpsgiraffe #dcpselephant #dcpsmaths #dcpslotc #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

Last week the full time nursery found some giant eggs in our garden. We discussed what we thought was inside the eggs. The children had great imaginations as some thought it was a giant chocolate egg from the Easter Bunny whilst others thought it could be a golden egg from Jack and the beanstalk, baby chicks, a dragon or a dinosaur. The children created their own posters to help find the owner of the two giant eggs and placed them around Nursery. The next day when we came to school we noticed that the eggs were missing and found a range of footprints and fossils in our nursery classroom. We investigated what happened to the eggs and managed to free some baby dinosaurs trapped in ice by investigating different ways in which we could make ice melt faster #dcpscaterpillar #dcpsEYFS #dcps30hours #dcpscore #dcpslotc #dcpsstem #dcpsenglish ...

Year 6 had a fantastic day in Edinburgh on Wednesday. We went on a Harry Potter trail to learn about the different places that inspired the story, stopped off for lunch at TGI Friday’s and then spent the afternoon in the Edinburgh dungeons finding out about Scottish history and hearing some terrifying tales. Everyone had an amazing day! #dcpslion #dcpstiger #dcpslotc #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

Elephants had an amazing day at Segedunum today. This was the finale of our Frontiers Voices project. We got to see our completed art work, it looks fantastic! We are so proud of what we have a achieved and learned as part of our local heritage. We also got to make Roman helmets which we wore in the afternoon for the museum takeover. We loved sharing our work and learning experience with our parents. If you can pop along a see it! #dcpselephant #dcpshistory #dcpsgeography #dcpsart #dcpslotc #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

Year 2 had even more Learning Outside of the Classrom in the sun today! We were given a measurement and had to use the water in the buckets to fill the jugs with the correct amount. #dcpscore #dcpsdragon #dcpsdinosaur #dcpsmaths #dcpslotc ... See MoreSee Less

Another Learning Outside of the Classroom for Year 2. This week we have been looking at how our local area can be spoilt by littering. We went onto the yard to find litter, some might’ve been planted there... of course we picked it all up at the end and washed our hands after! #dcpscore #dcpsdragon #dcpsgeography #dcpslotc ...

In literacy Year 2 we went outside to find something interesting. We had to use adjectives to describe our something interesting. We specifically looked at what does it look it, smell like, feel like and sound like. #dcpscore #dcpsdragon #dcpsenglish #dcpslotc ... See MoreSee Less

This week Year 2 have taken part in lots of Learning Outside of the Classroom activities. We used adjectives to describe particular objects we found on the yard, explored the capacity of different containers and looked at how the local environment can be spoilt by littering. #dcpsdinosaur #dcpsdragon #dcpsmaths #dcpsenglish #dcpsgeography #dcpslotc #dcpscore ...

Here are some photos of our last couple of trips to the woods. We are mini-beast obsessed at the moment and are loving hunting for different bugs. Our little space in the woods has grown so much recently the sun struggles to break through all the leaves so some of the shadows we have seen have been amazing! #dcpsEYFS #dcpsladybird #dcpsbutterfly #dcpscore #dcpsstem #dcpslotc ...

Elephants had a brilliant day at Newcastle Cathedral today. We enjoyed exploring the different areas of the Cathedral using our compass points to navigate our way round. We found out about the importance of the building, it’s history and why it was built in it’s current location. In our workshop we created silhouettes of the city of Newcastle using images to see how the city has changed overtime. #dcpselephant #dcpsre #dcpshistory #dcpslotc #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less
