Outdoor learning day- 21st November 2019

Outdoor learning day- 21st November 2019 1

We loved our outdoor learning day this week. We enjoyed many activities and not even the cold weather could dampen our spirits!

We started with an activity called Robert's finger. Year 6 had to collect as many sticks/twigs as they could from around the school grounds. They then got into groups and nominated one person to choose a stick. They were then told that the stick they had chosen would represent that child's little finger, and that they were to make a model of that child based on this. This made it rather challenging for the groups that chose the biggest sticks and helped us to start to understand ratio and proportion. 

We had little breaks throughout the day where children snuggled under blankets and listened to a story..
We planted some perennials that will brighten our class bed during summer, and some daffodils that will look beautiful in Spring.

EYFS Buddies

Year 6 help the children in EYFS at lunchtime and during assembly. They are a big help, making sure that the younger children have everything they need.

Year 6 have been researching and investigating evolution and adaptation this half term. They particularly enjoyed their investigation into how varying adaptations to birds' beaks would affect how much food they could gather.

Year 6 have found rally coaching particularly useful recently when tackling long division. They have taken it in turns to coach their partner through challenging problems, asking questions to prompt when help is needed and encouraging each other to work with determination.

 

After being shocked by what they had learned about child workers during our Victorians topic, Year 6 had the opportunity to experience a day in the life of child mill workers. They were given jobs to do and learned about the dangers of working in a cotton mill. Year 6 particularly enjoyed the school room and were horrified by the terrible sleeping arrangements for apprentice children!
