Outdoor Learning

Our outdoor area at Killowen is like another classroom. All of the learning is planned for in the same way as indoors. We go out every day in all weathers and put on boots and puddlesuits to keep us warm and dry. Children have the opportunity to make potions in the mud kitchen, construct with real equipment, climb and balance and experience natural resources as well as creative and imaginative play. It's lots of fun!

Nursery looking at mini beasts, snails and centipedes.

The moon was visible one morning so the Nursery Morning Session painted a moon, made space buggies and then looked more at light and shadows.

Lots of good mark making; looking at height and measurement through Jack and the Beanstalk and fine motor work with magic broad beans.
