Outdoor Learning

Today Primary 4/5 took their learning outside. They worked together to create a bar graph with an x and y axis and a scale showing off all their learning from information handling.

They then considered all the ways that they could sort themselves to create these amazing human bar graphs.

They sorted themselves by boy or girl:

 Then they sorted themselves by age:

Lastly by favourite snack:

We think these human bar graphs looks fantastic and found this a fun way to show off our learning in information handling.

Dumfries House

Primary 4/5 went along to Dumfries House on Thursday for a chance to learn about the animals and their habitat. The children looked at what they needed to be happy and healthy and compared this with what animals need finding many similarities.

The children then went around the farm feeding the animals whilst learning all about their preferred habitats.

The second half of the day consisteted of pond dipping, creating nests for birds and assisting in building an ant hotel!

The rainy weather certainly didn’t dampen our spirits 🙂
