Outdoor Classroom Day-November 2022
Outdoor Classroom Day is a global movement to make time outdoors part of every child's day. On two days of action each year, teachers take children outdoors to play and learn. All year round, the Outdoor Classroom Day community campaigns for more time outdoors every day.

What is meant by outdoor learning?
Outdoor Learning is active learning in the outdoors. In Outdoor Learning participants learn through what they do, through what they encounter and through what they discover. Participants learn about the outdoors, themselves and each other, while also learning outdoor skills.
In Year 1 The children in Caterpillar class spent the morning in forest school making a Pudsey Bear. They used natural materials found outside to make the picture. The year 4 children were out making fireworks and counting leaves to practise maths. Year 5 have been performing their Space Haiku poetry outside on the stage this morning and then took on a Space Orienteering challenge this afternoon around the school. Lots of map reading involved! Y3 children enjoying outside play and forest school activities. Our Y6 activity today was from an R.E. lesson based on understanding how Muslims show commitment to Allah. The Year 6 children had studied Muslim prayer, then role-played the ritual of prayer (without saying the words) to understand how the prayer times work.
