KS1 Outdoor Learning
Natural resource images
After reading the story of Leafman, children used different natural resources to create their own leaf creatures and characters.
Going on a Leaf Hunt!
We explored the outside area and went on a treasure hunt to find, identify and sort different leaves. We found lots – Holly, Sycamore and Birch leaves!
To answer the question ‘How many different minibeasts live in our outside area?’, children in Pine class went on a minibeast hunt around the school field and took part in pond-dipping. We discovered 11 different types of minibeasts in our school.
Shelters for Beegu
After reading the story Beegu, children from Beech class used natural resources to make a home for Beegu. We thought carefully about how to make the structure stable and what features a den would need to have to keep Beegu safe and comfortable.
Sorting natural resources
Children in Maple class explored natural resources in the KS1 playground and sorted the resources into Venn diagrams according to their properties.
KS2 Outdoor Learning
Christmas Outdoor Learning in Elm Class
Children used natural resources found in the KS2 field to create Christmas wreaths and Christmas reindeer ornaments.
Year 3 Outdoor Learning
Children in Year 3 created images of story characters using a variety of natural resources they could find on the school field. We carefully considered the properties of the story character and the properties of the natural resources they collected to build up their images.
