Outdoor Learning

Star orienteering

Year Six have been using the new orienteering course that has been installed in school. To get to know the markers, they worked in class, identifying the markers. Then outside, they worked in pairs to find all the points around the Key Stage 2 yard.

Seed dispersal

Seed dispersal

In outdoor learning, Year 3 have been exploring the different ways seeds are transported from plants. The children found different seeds throughout the school grounds and discussed the ways in which they thought they might travel.

 

 

Some blew with the wind, some fell to the ground and others were carried by animals. The children will explore this further within Science.

Roman Mosaics

As part of their topic, Year 3 have been learning about Roman mosaics. The children created their own versions as part of their outdoor learning. They chose something special to create the mosaic about and then used natural materials to do so.

Grow Your Own Potatoes

Grow Your Own Potatoes

In Nursery, we have joined a project called grow your own potatoes (GYOP).  We’ve been sent 2 different types of potatoes and last week everybody in the project had to plant their potatoes. @potatoes4school

We will be updating and comparing how our potatoes are doing with other groups of growers at regular times and then hopefully, our potatoes will be ready to harvest in the middle of June.

 

Goldilocks and the Three Bears in Nursery

Goldilocks and the Three Bears in Nursery

Today in outdoor learning, we read the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We talked about the number 3 and the different sizes of the bears, bowls chairs and beds.

 

The boys and girls enjoyed collecting wood for the three Bears to make a fire. The bears were very hungry, so the children cooked them some porridge. They looked at the difference in the oats before and after we added the water. When the porridge was cooked, we all got to taste some of the porridge and it was yummy!
