SJS Pupils Enjoy Outdoor Learning
Stamford Junior School dedicated last week to Outdoor Education, taking lessons outside the classroom and focusing on collaboration and organisation skills.
Activities varied throughout the week and took place all over Stamford, with Year 1 pupils taking part in a Welly Wanging Challenge, providing some opportunities for team-work and data collection. Year 2 had an adventure in the woods to make dens. The Year 3 and Year 6 classes took part in some Outdoor Maths, with the Year 3 pupils looking at trial and error and improving the results of an array of activities. The Year 6 class took their session to Burghley Park where they set about challenges such as orienteering and calculations based on rearing livestock and measurements of trees.
Year 3 student, Evalyn Dickie-Meadows said: “We really enjoyed it because we were having loads of fun at the same time as learning new things.”
