Otley & WItnesham Partnership
Lockdown has been hard on all of the children but, as we start to return to something resembling normality, we have enjoyed seeing the development of the school grounds. We are incredibly fortunate to have large school grounds and we are continually striving to make the most of this.
Outside classrooms have been developed at both schools to enable safe learning in bubbles, while work on the grounds/ play areas has helped us to maintain healthy lifestyles. Our children can enjoy outside learning in all weathers and partake in physical exercise to boost health and wellbeing.
In addition to the outside classroom at Witnesham Primary School, we have a new daily mile track and a solar powered stopwatch so the children can see their personal best improve. This reflects the positive attitude to personal development in our vision of Passion + Pride = Progress.
At Otley Primary School there is a new trike track aimed at younger children, but the older children have been enjoying it too! The beautiful roadway provides a ‘real life’ scenario for role play and children are enjoying the responsibilities involved in setting up the bikes and scooters each day. We have already seen so many smiles and some fantastic Teamwork Tigers too.
