Every Friday afternoon, Mrs Dixon leads outdoor learning which develops our children’s ‘soft’ skills such as instruction following, resilience, listening, turn-taking and evaluating. 
On Friday, the children learned how to tie poles together for building dens. The children worked as part of a team to travel across the ‘swamp’ to exchange some den building equipment with a different team. 
After the children had completed the ‘swamp challenge’ they worked as a large group to start building a den and evaluated how well they worked together. 
The children described each other as good listeners, good communicators, helpful and good at sharing and taking turns.
