Outdoor Classroom Day
On the 4th November, the whole school participated in Outdoor Classroom Day. The children participated in a range of lessons using lots of different locations in the school grounds. The school has a real buzz about it and as I passed children their smiles seemed that little bit wider than normal. Come take a look at the activities we got up to.
