The children at Portpatrick primary have been very busy today as they celebrated Outdoor Learning Day- albeit a day early to take advantage of the beautiful weather. Outdoor Classroom Day is a global movement to make time outdoors part of every child’s day. While we are no stranger to the outdoors in Portpatrick we like to participate in as much outdoor fun as we can.
In P1-4 pupils were practising their number bonds, multiplication and division skills. They children created Venn diagrams to explore multiples of numbers and used sticks and stones to explore the concept of multiplication and division.
In P4-7 pupil were taking part in some measure, area and estimating activities.
Using vocabulary inspired by the outdoor environment all pupils took part in some literacy writing. Thinking about our senses we took the time to write about the environment around us and P1-4 crated some incredible pieces of writing which started with the sentence, “As I sat on top of the hill I could see/hear/smell…”
The children were delighted to take part in the Great 2021 BUG HUNT in which they were able to identify different creatures, their habitats and discussed what they needed to survive.
In P.E. Pupils took part in Active Schools activities with Lewis in the afternoon playing lots of exciting team games.
It was another very successful day outdoors at Portpatrick.
