This session of outdoor learning with Reception and Year 1 truly embraced our programme LEAF! The children eagerly hunted for a different variety of leaves in all shapes, colours and sizes. They were then able to examine them up close and make sketches too.
Year 2 get stuck in! The children thoroughly enjoyed their session den building outside. Working together to choose the right materials for their den and thinking about how to fix it all together. A great effort from all of them and lots of fun too.

This week in LEAF, Year 1 went on a treasure hunt across the school grounds to recover various natural materials. Pinecones, leaves and bits of string were all gathered. They also played some teambuilding games to warm themselves up from the cold.
Our resilient and hardy children in Reception were not put off by the recent cold snap, they loved getting to grips with the great outdoors in their latest LEAF session. Working together was key as was enjoying the fresh air nature and having lots of fun.
Year 6 children thoroughly enjoyed and embraced their outdoor learning session this week. They perfected their den building skills and got to work whittling. They are all gaining brilliant outdoor skills, determination and teamwork.
