Outdoor Learning

London’s Burning

 

Year 2 took part in an outdoor learning session about the great fire of London. The children arrived at the site to find houses set up to represent a London street from 1666. Following a discussion about how the fire began, a fire was lit in the bakery. The children got to see how the fire spread so easily and were able to explain how the fire was stopped through the explosion of a house. This was replicated through a removal of one of the cardboard houses.

Scale

Scale

Year Six have been studying scale. They used a map of the school grounds to measure distances on the map then on the actual ground. As a class they compared the measurements and concluded that the scale was 1:464.

Tree Planting

Tree Planting

Year 3 have been planting trees with the Woodland Trust. The children had a wonderful morning and planted over 30 trees! This is a new woodland and connects Path Head Woods to Summerhill Woods.

Scrambled Eggs!

The nursery children made scrambled  eggs outdoors this week!  We  were amazed by how they could change from a hard shell to a soft sticky liquid when we cracked them  open. We mixed them very carefully  and  then cooked  them,  they were  delicious. The chickens even tried to taste them.
