Outdoor Learning

"During outdoor play, children become teachers and learners"

 

At nursery, we truly value the importance of outdoor learning and believe that every child has the right to play outside. Therefore, all children can freely access the outdoor learning environment throughout their sessions. This means that children will play outside in all weathers, so please make sure that your child comes to nursery in warm and comfy clothes. 

 

Research shows that learning outdoors can play an important role in children's development, as it can help children build self-esteem and confidence as well as resilience and independence. When playing outside, children can learn how to assess and manage risks in a safe environment and explore the natural world around them. Outdoor learning also provides children with endless opportunities to move freely but it can also help children to develop their communication and social skills, as well as their physical development.

Spring Term

The children have had lots of fun exploring spring outdoors. They have been observing the wonderful changes that are happening outside, such as the flowers and plants growing around them. They have been independently using the watering cans to water our plants and they have observed the flowers more closely using the magnifying glasses. 

The children have also noticed more insects in the garden during the spring season and have gone on a number of mini-beast hunts with their friends, searching both high and low in the garden.

 

We have also had many other learning experiences happening outdoors, from cleaning the windows and doors using our large muscles to mark making in coloured sand to help improve our fine motor skills.

Looking after our environment

 

This week in our outdoor area, we have been putting our waterproofs on independently or with a little support to really develop those independence skills, and you can develop your confidence with these skills by practicing dressing yourself at home. 

 

We had a focus of looking after our environment, and we talked about the importance of how and why we should keep our surroundings clean and tidy. The children did a great job with using their large arm movements to sweep the floor and their fine motor skills by using the litter pickers to pick up pieces of rubbish and putting them in the bin bags.

It was a real team effort and the children loved working together on these activities. 

Exploring Winter

When it snowed at Anglesey Primary School, we made the most of it.

The children enjoyed exploring the outdoors and talking about what they could see and how the snow and ice felt in their hands. The children also used their problem-solving skills to find different ways to melt the ice to help rescue our resources. We found out that warm water and salt can help melt the ice but using hammers can be just as fun to rescue our resources, as we was able to smash and break the ice into tiny pieces using our big strong muscles.

Autumn Term

Welcome to Anglesey Primary School… Watch our children talking to pop star Jack Savoretti on the BBC https://twitter.com/bbcwm/status/1524401477237760000?s=20&t=9wZSlow0kYybBF9lPVYwTQ .Information about Isolation if someone in the household has tested positive for Covid. The following information is taken directly from a Public Health webinar with Dr Justin Varney: Director of Public Health, Birmingham City Council. (06.01.22) If someone in your household has tested positive and your child is 5 years old or over, they should come into school. The child should do daily lateral flow tests. If someone in your household has tested positive and your child is under 5, then they should stay at home with the person who has tested positive until the isolation period is over.
