- Our Outdoor Learning Project – Can you help?
- Welcome back to our new school year
- Improvements around the school
Over the summer holidays there have been a number of refurbishments -thankfully no major construction! Several of our Key Stage 2 classrooms have benefitted from new carpets.
Outside, we completed the construction of our gravel path that leads from the Romsey Road entrance to the playground. This means the path will be usable now that the Autumn and Winter months will soon be approaching.
We have also marked the playground and surrounding hard standing with an assortment of dots and lines. This will help organise games during PE lessons and also encourage children to create their own games during playtime. Thank you and the PTA for raising the money to fund this project; I have already witnessed the children attempting the long jump!
The adventure playground has also benefitted from resurfacing of wood chips
- St. Peter’s Wild Land
St. Peter’s Wild Land
You may have heard of Forest School which is an approach to learning using the outdoor environment. Throughout last year we started to investigate what this approach involves and whether we should adopt it at St. Peter’s. I invited a local leading expert, Sam Victoria, who set up the Little Explorers (where some of our children spent their pre-school years) to come and look around our grounds. Sam was enthusiastic and inspirational so we invited her back on Monday to lead our Inset.
During the day, over 50 staff and governors cleared and made safe what has been a redundant part of the school site. We lopped branches, cleared paths, created spaces and built constructions. We have created a wild land that we hope will enrich the curriculum for all our children.
We hope to feedback to you the learning that takes place there as the year progresses. Watch this wild land space!
