It was Lily’s turn to pick the outdoor activity she picked leaf to leaf so we have been outdoors collecting different kinds of leaves. We were looking for different shapes, sizes and colours. We have been trying to find out what kinds of leaves they are so we can discover what trees we have around the school. We then made some lovely artworks by drawing and rubbing the leaves.
P3 took their learning outdoors this afternoon, what a gorgeous day to be outside. Phoenix picked a card from our outdoor learning bowl, our activity today was called invent-a-nature. We had to pick up different pieces of nature and think about what other ways they could be used. We worked in pairs and groups and collected lots of interesting natural materials. We then got to inventing, we had lots of different constructions going on, including a step ladder for the birds so they could enter a safe area away from any predators, a fairy house and a top notch 5 star bug hotel. We also seen some sparrows who were very busy in the bird boxes just outside our classroom, we think they may have chicks so we shall be keeping a close eye on them.
After taking part in the RSPB Big Birdwatch P3 have been finding out more about local birds. We have been learning about the different parts of birds, looking at the variety of colours in their feathers and learning some facts about them. We created some detailed line drawings of the birds we had seen and wrote little fact files about them. We then put them on display in our paper plate tree for everyone to enjoy.
AMAZING artwork from our talented P7s!!!
At our staff session on Tuesday we looked at Planning for Assessment – sharing our good practice and supporting each other
