Learning within the community
This year the children have been learning about their local communities and exploring a range of environments. They have visited their local library, community shops, cafes as well as parks and environmental walks in the area around the school.
They have travelled further afield to explore the Sea life centre, Ash End farm, Birmingham airport and a variety of towns and cities in the West Midlands area and we have even had a visit from the local constabulary.
It is important to us that your child is given the opportunity to make observations about their environments, the people and creatures that inhabit it. We provide rich, stimulating and fascinating experiences to enable them to show curiosity about where they live and give them an insight into what a wonderful world they live in.
Through these learning experiences your child will learn to question, explore and take calculated risks providing them with the skills and desires to begin their own adventures.
Our next step will be to continue to provide rich learning environments and using various methods of communication systems (e.g. photos, video, selection or discussion) to capture the child’s voice about where and what type of experience they would like to participate in the future and what learning occurred from previous activities.
