Outdoor Learning Week 2017

From 3rd – 7th July 2017 we held our Outdoor Learning Week. Our theme this year was ‘On the Move’. We were very lucky with the weather and everyone enjoyed all their learning experiences outside. The first job was to prepare the tents which would be used as classrooms for the week. Year 4 were amazing – working as a team to put their tent up. Miss Smith challenged herself to put one up on her own!

Everything takes place outside for the whole week. Assemblies, weekly story club for the Early Years children and Year 4 even had their violin lesson outdoors! Each class also took part in a skipping session, learning new skills.

On an allocated day, each class had the opportunity to bring ‘wheels’ to school. We had a great time with bikes, scooters, roller skates, remote control vehicles and many other items. It was fantastic to see so much teamwork and sharing taking place

Weekly French lessons were also outside. Years 1 and 2 were challenged to pass a hoop (un cerceau) around in a circle whilst holding hands. We practised the words: un pied, l’autre pied et la tête.

Years 3 and 4 went on a trail to match the vehicles and their animal drivers. They also had to identify the colours of the vehicles in French.

Year 6 had to work in teams to identify vehicles in French, as well as their colour. Finally they practiced their numbers in French with a game of Snakes and Ladders.
