Stig of Worsley Woods

“Learning outdoors creates lasting memories, helps build a greater awareness of the environment, provides more opportunities to think independently, and gets children feeling challenged and excited by learning. Children are more active when they play outdoors; It is essential for their healthy development and enjoyment of childhood.” (outdoorclassroomday.com)

Begun in 2012, a handful of schools in London started an outdoor classroom day.  By 2015, 600 schools in 15 countries took part.  This year, the event went global with an Outdoor Classroom Day on 18th May.  While we missed that, we registered and agreed that we would hold an outdoor week where we get as many of our children as possible outdoors.

Prep V started us today – using naturally found objects (and the odd bit of rubbish left lying around – which our children cleaned up afterwards), the children worked in teams to create their own images of Stig of the Dump in the woods.  We’re sure you’ll agree they were pretty impressive!
