There is a range of research that all reinforces that outdoor learning boosts performance at school and reduces stress in children. Here at St Helen's we agree and just as importantly know it's a lot of fun! Outdoor learning experiences are often the ones children recall readily and with great enthusiasm. We recognise we are very lucky to have such a great outdoor learning area and endeavour to make full use of it in all areas across the curriculum.
We had great fun working in our classes and our house teams building dens and raising money for Save the Children. Thank you for all your donations which totalled an impressive £300!
Well done to Tolkien house for building the winning den that could accommodate all the children and staff in the house.
Winning Den- Tolkien!
Den building fun!
