Sherbrook Primary School

History of L.O.T.C

Sherbrook Primary School has been developing its provision for Learning Outside the Classroom over a number of years. Teachers have always been encouraged to take their learning outside wherever possible. Before September 2016 our outside space was quite limited with just tarmac playgrounds and small sensory garden.

When the school was extended two years ago we were fortunate to acquire a large plot of land. This land originally had a large building on it so a lot of work was needed to get it ready for the school to use.

        

        

 

Following the acquisition of the area of land the school council was asked what they would like the area to look like. The children decided they would like a trim trail, cycle/running track, a football field and an outdoor classroom. They also wanted a swimming pool, Jacuzzi and an ice skating rink – maybe next time!!

Staff met with the designers and the proposals were put to them and we are pleased to say that most of their requests were able to be included. Following many months of hard work we now have a lovely, useable space for our staff and children to enjoy.

 

 

Now children can enjoy their extended outside space to enhance their learning and to develop an appreciation of the natural world.
