Y3 Den Building - using Greswold's own environment to enhance their learning

This morning, year 3 children came to school geared up with wellies and waterproofs for a special Design and Technology lesson taking place outdoors!


As part of their work on building structures, the children had the opportunity of applying their existing learning to building real life shelters using materials found in our Forest School area.   


As you can see below, all the children had a really purposeful and enjoyable time experimenting with different ways of joining natural materials together to create shelters which would keep themselves safe.


Thank you to the year 3 staff and Mr Cooper, in particular, for providing such an immersive learning experience within the backdrop of our own school field.  Most other schools would have to travel to such a destination so it's wonderful to be able to provide this sort of experience without travel or cost!


We are so fortunate to benefit from such a perfect school environment!
