Outdoor Learning Gallery
At New Ford we pride ourselves in giving children the best possible opportunities and hands on experiences. This is why we promote outdoor learning widely across the whole school.
Please see our EYFS gallery below, to see some of our fabulous outdoor learning.
Look at what we have found growing in our garden....Strawberries!
We are very lucky in Reception; we have planted lots of different fruits and vegetables and some of them are now ready to eat!
Whilst we have been learning about 'Holidays' our Nursery children have had great fun outdoors, using their imagination and problem-solving skills to build camps and dens, make vegetable stew, and cook on the camp fire.
They have also been producing large scale art inspired by Andy Goldsworthy who uses natural objects such as wood and pebbles to produce his artwork.
Our Nursery children have been enjoying lots of activities in our outdoor learning area to develop gross motor skills - water painting, writing and mark making with paintbrushes on the walls, brushing with bubbles, travelling and balancing, fishing, and enjoying planting in our potting shed.
Week Beginning 29th March 2021
Reception have had a fabulous week in the warmer weather exploring our school grounds.
We have been on a walk to see what we could spot as we now enter the Spring season.
We found lots of insects, buds on trees and flowers that have started to grow.
