Great morning at for the maths lesson study. An excellent insight into how maths mastery looks in the classroom, following a number of years of embedding the practice across the school.

Outdoor Learning

Planting and growing

Using our wonderful outdoor space, we have grown many different vegetables which are then used at The Whyteleiciuos Café to serve to the children for dinner. We plant carrots, potatoes, tomatoes, corn on the cob, beetroot, lettuce, radishes, onions, broad beans, peas and runner beans. Growing their own food gives our children, across the year groups, a great opportunity to see where our food comes from and the whole process form planting seeds to harvesting food.

Chickens

Our 4 chickens are cared for by the children at our school. Clover, Marigold, Iris and Bluebell provide a unique opportunity for the children to take responsibility and care for our pets enhancing their understanding of the commitment needed to keep animals. Children are responsible for collecting eggs, cleaning the run and changing the bedding to support their understanding of the importance of good pet care. Through the chicken adoption scheme, children get the opportunity to cuddle, feed and keep the eggs collected from the chickens.

                                                                                                                                             

Beekeeping

Beekeeping is a fascinating activity for all age groups and provides many learning opportunities in subjects as varied as science, maths, literacy, history, R.E and French. The bee sanctuary (a walled courtyard within the school grounds) houses our bee hive which is cared for by the children at the school including a weekly bee club for upper KS2 and Outdoor Learning groups for lower KS2.

 

Forest school

Forest school happens weekly throughout the year at Whyteleafe. All children in reception and year one attend once a year and there are many other opportunities for other children in the school to attend.

“Forest School is an inspirational process that offers ALL learners regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland or natural environment with trees. Forest School is a specialised learning approach that sits within and compliments the wider context of outdoor and woodland education.”

Forest School Association.
