P5/6 Maths and Bird Hide Activities

Over a three week period P5/6 worked at three different outdoor learning activities.

(Download plans – Outdoor Learning – P5/6 Plans – March Activities)

Each session began with a class warm up game followed by group work
a) Photograph acute, right and obtuse angles in the environment and then use the pictures to create a maths resource which can be used to teach other pupils about angles.

b) Design a maths game to teach other pupils about multiples and factors.

c) Design a bird hide which has to
– be big enough for the whole group to use
– is wind and rain proof
– has a spy hole

Have a look at some photographs of our activities and read our comments too!

Outdoor Learning Party

To end our block of Outdoor Learning activities we had a party on the day before the Easter Holidays.
At the start we split into groups to either build an igloo or make a shelter which the whole class could use.
Then we went back into our three groups

a) Outdoor cooking – melt mallows to make smores and heat water to make hot chocolate.
b) Obstacle race – try to get an ‘egg and spoon’ over the activity equipment.
c) Egg Drop – using only a few items we had to design something to protect an egg which we then dropped from the verandah – only two survived!
