Turtles Outdoor Learning and Sensory Garden

Outdoor Learning 2019-2020

Allotment

 

Terrapins and Turtles have been visiting our allotment plot weekly. The children have been weeding and preparing the ground. We have also planted a blueberry and blackberry plant.

Outdoor Learning 2018 - 2019

In outdoor learning this week the children have been planting a variety of herbs and flowers for a School Wheelbarrow competition at Gardeners World.

Number Day

 

In outdoor learning this week for Number Day the children went outside to collect some natural materials. When they got back into the classroom the children created shapes with the leaves and matched numbers to the amount of stones. Also, the children found some ice so we estimated how long the ice would take to melt.

Big Bird Watch

 

In our outdoor learning this week, Turtles took part in The Big Bird Watch.  First, they learnt about the different parts of the bird. Then the children worked in pairs to look out for birds and completed the counting chart. They had lots of fun identifying all the different birds.

Forest School 
 

Turtles have enjoyed lots of fun experiences in Forest School this half term. We have created clay faces using natural materials, finding and measuring worms as part of an experiment and bird watching. Also, we have learnt how to safely light a fire and even enjoyed drinking hot chocolate around the fire.

Snow day!
 
We enjoyed playing in the snow  in forest school today. We all threw some snow balls and ran around in the snow. It was so much fun!

Turtles have green fingers!
 
 We have been busy bee's this half term. We have been working hard to make the area outside our classroom beautiful. We worked as a team to lay bark and plant heather. It is looking much better already.
