Out and about with Alan in Outdoor Education
Room 8 took part in a scavenger hunt at Duthie Park. We were looking for various items, including fish, flowers and the big frog in the pond.
Some pupils were able to read the words and reinforce their numeracy skills by counting what they had to find.
Sadly, the turtles were being shy and we only saw 3.
Room 10 pupils were exploring a farm path near Orchard Brae. We were exploring to see what we could find. Some of the pupils loved splashing in puddles so it was just as well they were wearing wellies!
It was too cold to go out, so we did our outdoor learning indoors!
We looked at pictures of trees of trees silhouetted against a winter sunset, and then tried to recreate this on paper, using natural materials.
We used charcoal to rub over leaves and twigs to create the trees, then used various materials to make clouds. We stuck this down on a dark blue background, which looked very effective!
Room 18 have been helping to dig over the sandpit.
The sandpit needed to be raked and dug over. We also needed to brush sand from the playground. The class used rakes to move sand, and the progress was amazing. Sand was moved from the edge back into the middle, where it was needed.
