Halloween in the Primary playground
November 3, 2021 / 4:37 pm
Sensory play, spooky stories and classic costumes were donned in the Primary class this Halloween. It’s all part of the wide range of learning and enrichment opportunities we provide for all our Primary students.
Over the last 12 months we have worked hard to develop the outdoor learning environments including the addition of our new Outdoor Forest Library, the completion of our Outdoor Learning Centre and the revamped outdoor classroom at Willow Way.
We have also been gifted a new rainbow shelter for the Primary playground which was generously donated by Sun Life Financial of Canada – Brighter Life Community Programme. Now we can safely venture outside even in typical British weather!
Outdoor learning is a huge part of our programme here and support from donors makes it even more fun for our learners.
Alan Titchmarsh, who recently opened our Outdoor Learning Centre said:
Outdoor learning is vital for our health as individuals and as a community, and Treloar’s are a wonderful example of how that connection with nature can be achieved and how it benefits us all.
Getting families involved
We’ve also made learning and enrichment journals so families can get involved. Asher is in our Primary class and his mum said:
“Thank you for sending Asher’s outdoor learning & enrichment journal home, it’s clear that you have put so much effort into this.
“We really appreciate seeing all the lovely things that Asher gets up to in this lesson.
“It’s wonderful to see Asher getting hands on with different aspects of the garden – discovering plants, bug house, exploring different textures, learning about insects and other animals you might find in the garden.
“A huge thank you from our family and especially Asher for giving him this opportunity. Thank you to everyone involved, everyone that donates, volunteers and brings happiness to our children.”
We’re delighted to bring such opportunities to our young people.
With support from our donors like Sun Life Financial of Canada, we can do even more – including spending time outside in the autumn months.
