Outdoor Learning

Picture 1

Our wildlife garden is now ready for action! The willow is already starting to grow around the willow tunnel and planters are ready for the first signs of Spring when we can start planting our fruit and vegetables. The bug hotels are already housing some minibeasts upon close inspection and the poly tunnel is ready for classes!

We can't wait for the children to start to really get to use the garden as part of life at Lane End. We know that they will have so many enriching experiences from it ( and hopefully some tasty food too!)

Our wildlife garden is really starting to take shape. The planters are in place, the start of an outdoor learning space is developing and we can see the first signs of a willow tunnel appearing. How exciting!!!

This year at Lane End we are developing a wildlife garden.  Children will access this space for many different outdoor learning opportunities such as growing, planting and measuring in maths and science. The opportunities are endless!!!!

The children are so excited for their garden and can't wait for it to be finished, so they can start using it. Here are some pictures of the development in progress. Keep checking back regularly to see the development as it happens.

Gardening club were visited by Ed from the Woodland Trust today. We were lucky to have been given some trees by the Trust that we planted and Ed visited us today to inspect them. He then had some questions for the children and gave them some advice on looking after the trees. Ed was super impressed by the care and attention that the children had taken over the trees with only two of 45 not surviving! Well done gardening club!
As well as building the Lane End Den, all children across school had the opportunity to build a den during the day. Much fun, collaboration and reflection was required to keep the dens up and fit everyone into a den! The children's imagination ran wild - during the day we saw Superhero dens, Princess Castle dens and some very interesting 'shoes off' dens were made by all - well done Lane End superheroes!

Our first whole school outdoor project was den building day. A group of children build a 'Lane End Den' with some outdoor survival experts, Andy and Paul. They worked collaboratively to build the den, followed by a  much deserved cup of hot chocolate, made outside on the camping stove. We have some budding outdoor explorers at Lane End!

Nursery came and enjoyed their story in our Lane End Den and some we inspired to try making their own den .

We love to be physical outside!
