Outdoor Classroom Day 2018
Mighty Mighty Thorn Grove!
We would like to share some magical moments from our fabulous ‘Outdoor Classroom Day’ earlier this term. We hope the children told you all about it but if not- here are some highlights!
The day began with an Outdoor Assembly where the teachers shared the Outdoor rules for the day. The number one rule was to enjoy the outdoors! Each class moved around 6 areas where they took part in a physical activity, circle time, field work, investigation and Forest School challenge.
At play time, the children swapped playgrounds for the day. During lunch time the whole school shared a picnic on the field. It was wonderful to see the oldest and youngest children coming together for this!
The afternoon involved children revisiting favourite activities such as den building, compass reading and stone decorating.
Whilst children were busily occupied, each class had an opportunity to toast a marshmallow around the campfire.
This was a special and extraordinary day which we hope children will remember for a very long time! Many thanks to all our parent helpers who supported the day and to Chris in the kitchen for preparing all the packed lunches!
