Ilkley's Moorfield School children enjoy learning outdoors
10:00am Monday 14th October 2013 in Local news
Reception class children at Ilkley’s Moorfield School spend an afternoon every week with their wellies on exploring, investigating and gardening.
Last week, they built a den using the branches from a tree that had been felled. Everyone had a job to do and worked very well together. They were delighted with the result of their labour.
Further development of the school grounds is planned with a proposed bridge over Backstone Beck to access a Forest School area.
Headteacher, Jessica Crossley, said: “Outdoor learning is an exciting way to access the curriculum and we are lucky to have enthusiastic and knowledgeable teachers.”
