Year 4 Outdoor Classroom

Year 4 had a fantastic time participating in Outdoor Classroom Day 2019. This is a global campaign which celebrates outdoor learning and play and we were excited to be part of the 3.5 million children worldwide who joined in. At Aughton Christ Church, we embrace and understand that outdoor learning improves children's health, engages them with learning and leads them to a greater connection with nature. We are fortunate to have plenty of incredible outdoor learning spaces and couldn't wait to take our lessons outside for a whole day! 

The day started with an English lesson were the children devised a short play to highlight anti-bullying week.  Then it was onto Maths were they consolidated their learning with a multiplication treasure hunt.

After lunch it was reading workshop were we took our favourite books outside, found our perfect spot and enjoyed the calm and tranquillity of reading in the great outdoors. 

The afternoon session was all about team building, enjoying nature and spending time together. Together we built a fire and agreed on the rules needed to stay safe. The children then worked their way around the activities which included den building, free play, fire bugs investigation and toasting marshmallows on the open fire.

We finished the day with a cup of hot chocolate and games on the field. A great time was had by all and we can’t wait for our next outdoor classroom day!
