The GREAT outdoors!

We are extremely lucky at Dore to have wonderful, large school grounds in a green conservation belt area with plenty of space to play and learn and plant!!!  We are looking forward to spending the sponsor walk money on a small set-up of chickens which Mr. Hall our building supervisor will be taking care of in an area on the field right by his house.  Children will be able to get to know about how to look after hens and there will be some eggs to share sometimes I am sure.
Two weeks ago the staff spent an adventurous 2 hour twilight trying out some new activities for our outdoor learning curriculum supported by the expert staff from Thornbridge. Again great enthusiasm and a willingness to have a go at anything! :)
