Grounds Launch Day

Grounds Launch Day

Folwing the developments and improvements to our school grounds last term, the children have been out and about learning in the grounds.  This was to launch Trailblazer – a scheme encouraging learning outdoors.  The children carried out a series of activities using their senses. These activities ranged from Year R making listening ears to listen to the sounds in the environment to Year 2 making pongy pots (some of which actually smelt quite nice).

Throughout this year the teachers will be increasing the opportunities for the children to realise that learning can take place anywhere.  This will help the children to respect and care for their environment, increase their general awareness of the world around them and increase their motivation and engagement in learning.  This will lead to the children receiving a certificate from Hampshire County Council, once their learning has been validated.

We are delighted with the new developments to our school grounds but there is still a lot more to be done.  If anyone is interested in supporting Mrs Francis create a tree trail, complete the wildlife garden, paint fences or help with general gardening please return the slip at the end of the Friday bulletin (27th September 2013)
