Learning Outside of the Classroom
St. John’s School won the LOtC (Learning Outside the Classroom) Primary School Award for 2011.

In addition, St John’s School was awarded Learning Outside the Classroom Silver Status in 2014.
Trips and activities are planned by teachers independently or in key stages linking to topics being studied and they take place throughout the year. The formal curriculum is delivered through high quality experiences which often includes visits. Every curriculum area is enriched through trips and LOtC activities.
Every class plans for trips and LOtC activities relevant to the children’s age and also to the topics being studied.
I love going to the woodlands, because we are seeing different birds and hearing birds sing
