P5 pupils from Longniddry Primary School have been getting to grips with rock-climbing at the Tranent Climbing Wall lately. The pupils learnt different climbing techniques, how to tie onto the rope, how to belay and above all how to work well how together and trust their partners. But it wasn’t all just a physical session. During one activity they had to combine both their bouldering ability and their literacy skills requiring them to write and draw whilst climbing.
An excellent example of literacy across learning – find out more and view their slide show on the East Lothian Outdoor Education Edubuzz site.
