P1 Outdoor Learning in Kinta Woods

Today the Primary one classes took part in some outdoor learning. We walked down the hill from school and headed towards the woods. On our walk down we walked away from the big black clouds towards the blue skies.
We stopped for a class photograph and little rest on the bench.
We all spotted a fairy door on our walk, and had a chat about what fairy was living behind the door. Some great imaginations!
Some children started to find some ladybirds.

Mrs Cheyne led the learning and told us all about the ladybirds and why we were able to find so much in those specific trees.

We then carried on walking and took part in some Numeracy, using the numbers on garage doors to help us. This week in class we have been learning about numbers more than and numbers less than. We also started discussing odd and even numbers.

As we arrived at Kinta Woods we used our senses to smell the garlic in the woods. A member of the public told us to look out for the red haired woodpecker, we are yet to see it! But maybe next time we go down we can find it.

Miss Michie gave us a challenge of leaving an art gallery for the public. We had to use nature to create bodies and faces, this linked to our topic about the human body. Have a look at our gallery below.

 

Oliver set the caterpillar free to be with his other caterpillar friends. On the way back up the road to school the rain started but we were all amazed at how sheltered we were in the trees. We had a sing song on the way back up singing our Braehead song.
