Learning outside the classroom

Reception enjoy leaning outdoors

The children in Reception enjoyed a wonderful day with Mr Barrett when he visited Billinge House for a special day of learning outdoors. They took part in a range of outdoor activities related to their current themes of Lifecycles and Mini-beasts.

A particular highlight was eating a picnic lunch outside in a specially made shelter! The children began by playing different games related to predators and prey. They then set off and worked in pairs to find natural items to create their own nest.

They talked about how to make the nest strong, safe and secure. The children used the materials they had found to help build a ‘Mini-Beast’ hotel.

Everyone is looking forward to checking to see which mini-beasts choose to come and visit.
