Outdoor Learning

Year 6 science topic this term includes classification and adaptation, so Mrs DeBoard thought it would be a fantastic opportunity to get out of the classroom and experience a session of Mrs Read’s Forest School. We joined Y1 and Wiggins class with the task of finding and identifying flora and fauna in the wooded area. Everyone enjoyed the hands on learning and the freedom of exploring our school woodland environment. Year 1 had the responsibility of providing year 6 with their expert knowledge and as you can see by the photos below, communication and team work skills were displayed throughout the session.
We have lots of photos and information to use in our lesson next week.
Thank you Mrs Read, year 1 and Wiggins class for sharing your expert knowledge on plants and animals.

  1. Having Year 1’s knowledge around was really handy. They knew all about the outdoor so they were very curious to find out more. I had a very curious bunch of children who wanted to go out and find thing new things they didn’t know. Some of my peers/friends says ‘The year one were handy I couldn’t have ask for a better group of children’. So AMEY if you are reading the forest school children are learning new things on this field every week you can’t use it for something else. Mrs Read and other staff who help you have taught them well.

  2. We think that the year 1s were very helpful during the proving of keeping our land and finding creatures and plants. They took us around the field helping us with identifying the animals and plants.
