Outdoor Classroom Day
“Our children celebrated ‘Outdoor Classroom Day’ on Thursday 20th May 2021. We used our forest school’s area and our main school grounds to take our learning outside! Not only does this provide a different learning experience for our children, but it also promotes mental health and well-being too! Here are some photos from Year 5! We had a lot of fun!”
We had great fun both outside and using items from outside back in the classroom. We did a maths treasure hunt challenge which had us running all over the playgrounds to find clues then we collected sticks to take back in side. We used the sticks to construct shadufs, which are irrigation tools used by the Ancient Egyptians.
Please take a look at our Christmas Show
For our Harvest Festival celebration this year we drew still life fruit and vegetables and used pastels to shade and highlight.
As part of our topic Alchemy Island we have been investigating different materials. We have looked at different ways of separating them eg filtering and evaporation and have found the difference between a reversible and irreversible change.
