Every third Wednesday (starting from 21st September 2016) Years 1 and 2 will be working together on a range of outdoor learning opportunities. We will explore the school grounds, to participate in some fun and exciting activities! Later in the year we are planning to go further afield! From den building for elves, making mud faces or elder wood necklaces; building natural sculptures, digging and exploring; every session is different and engaging. We will also be inviting visitors in to help us to start a Key Stage One garden.
Research shows that children who spend time in their outdoor environment grow up to care and look after it and young children love to learn outside!
Children will need to bring a pair of wellies, hats, gloves and a waterproof coat in to school each 'Welly Wednesday' so that they are suitably kitted out for the morning.

Unfortunately we were unable to go outside for Welly Wednesday this month due to the weather, but this didn't stop us from having lots of fun whilst we were learning!
Our theme was Easter for this Welly Wednesday. In the hall the children had PE 'egg-ercises' to complete. In teams they had to get past the chicken, crack open an egg and complete the challenge. In the corridors the children practised their addition skills. They wore bunny ear calculations that needed solving. The children had to jump (like the Easter bunny) along a giant number line. The third activity involved an egg hunt where the children had to apply their phonics to reading and writing.
