Another wonderful afternoon of outdoor education for P2

Another afternoon of outdoor education took us to Kinta Woods. We began our learning by making symmetrical pictures with one or two lines of symmetry. We worked in pairs for this task. We then walked further along to the little burn and threw leaves or sticks into the water and watched them make their way down the burn. We noticed that the trees had numbers on them. We were able to suggest reasons for this and the green plastic cylinders held up by thin posts. As we walked further round the path Owen noticed three deer on the hillside opposite us. Many children found it hard to see them as they were so well camouflaged. Can you spot them in the three photographs below? Despite the short rain shower it was a valuable and enjoyable experience. A few children were concerned about the ‘storm’ but eventually accepted that it would be okay!
