Swapping the classroom for a Tepee!

Children at Northbourne Park School had a rather unusual week recently when they swapped their classrooms for a native American Tepee.

Native American Indian Tepees were the homes of the nomadic tribes of the Great Plains in America, and the children enjoyed having their lessons inside their large authentic Tepee learning all about the indigenous Native American Indian population, their crafts and their culture.    

The children loved the atmosphere inside the Tepee set up in the schools grounds – it certainly put a sense of excitement into the lessons.  

Mrs Martindale, Head of Art said:  “The aim was to give the children a greater understanding of Native American culture.  The whole school have been able to enjoy lessons in a different environment and have responded enthusiastically.”

Mrs Christie Riley, Head of History said:   “Broadening our pupils’ understanding of past civilizations and cultures outside of the classroom environment enriches their world view and enhances learning.  Using all curriculum subjects as a platform to draw in their imagination through role play and engaging with their peers, lets the pupils have fun and builds confidence.  I’m all for taking learning outdoors!”
