Striving for Excellence in Outdoor Learning
At the end of last term, Outdoor and Enrichment co-ordinator, Jo Anderson sent her Primary students home with Outdoor Learning Journals. The journals were put together for parents to have an insight into just how much learning and enrichment takes place outside, and the wide range of opportunities we provide for all our Primary students.
Over the last 12 months we have worked hard to develop the outside learning environments, the latest addition being the rainbow shelter in the Primary Playground. We have also seen the addition of our new Outdoor Forest Library, the completion of our Outdoor Learning Centre and the revamped outdoor classroom at Willow Way.
We are delighted to share some of the positive feedback we received from parents:
‘I LOVE John’s Outdoor Learning and Enrichment Journal. It’s amazing to see him at school with his friends and teachers having so much fun but also enjoying experiences that so many of us take for granted but that John would really struggle to have without support. The look on his face when he is feeling the inside of the pumpkin is priceless and he looks so happy in the Rainforest.’ Katherine
‘The Journal was lovely! I can’t really express how wonderful it is to be able to see some of the activities Noah has been doing! He’s not able to verbally tell me all the details of his day at school, so to be able to look through the Journal with him and see the joy on his face when he recalled the activities was magical!’ Tracey
‘We absolutely loved the journal! It was wonderful to see what our daughter has been up to and provides lovely memories from her first year at Treloars.’ Jane
‘I absolutely loved the outdoor activity book sent out. Very informative and such a lovely way to see Christian’s learning development at school.’ Kate
‘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.’ Sarah
