Queen’s Park kids get a taste of outdoor learning in the sunshine

Queens Park Academy Outdoor Classroom 1

Staff and pupils at Queens Park Academy took part in Outdoor Classroom day on Thursday (23 May) with all learning activities taking place outside.

The day was planned by Y6 Teacher and PSHE/Outdoor Learning leader, Mrs Sarah Higgins.

It all kicked off with a special assembly with staff performing the story of ‘The Gruffalo’.

Following this, children enjoyed taking part in a range of outdoor activities that were linked to the well-loved children’s book.

These included creating potions, den building, nature trails, mask making, fire making and cooking marshmallows and bread on the campfire.

A spokesperson for the school said the inside of the school was strangely quiet with every child being outside enjoying the fantastic activities in the beautiful weather.
