The Willows Primary School
Year 1 pupils became ‘The Willows Adventure Team’. Each week they went on a different imaginative ‘adventures’ inside the school and around its grounds. They explored and investigated ‘nature’ through movement and dance, enhancing the kinaesthetic approach to learning. After taking part in a practical session the 3 groups returned back to the classroom, where they wrote down their experiences. These experiences then led to the creation of ‘The Willows Adventure Group Story Book’. The aim was to provide greater understanding of nature and encourage writing by ‘doing’ whilst having fun and developing creativity and imagination.
Rachael and Amy worked alongside the teachers and pupils at the school during the Spring term. Rachael also lead CPD sessions for the teachers.
