50 things outdoors -catch

This week we have been outdoors lots. We have been playing lots of games and having fun. Some of the children have been running playing tig with peers and staff. We took a ball out and played catch. We stood in a circle and threw the ball and tried to catch it when it was thrown to us. It was fun and everyone enjoyed it. We also took some scarfs out to throw up in the air. They came down much slower than the ball.

50 things outdoors – bubbles

The Bluebells love being outdoor. We enjoy going to the garden on a walk. At the start of the school year we explored bubbles in the garden which was lots of fun. We revisited it this week using our bubble rocket launcher in the garden. The children thoroughly enjoyed seeing the rocket fly into the air and the bubbles that it produced. Some even tried to stomp hard to make the rocket soar into the sky. They enjoyed running and catching the bubbles and bursting them with their hands.

50 things outdoors – Autumn art

We had lots of fun creating some Autumn art with leaves we collected from the garden. We explore the different shapes and colours and then used them to create a mane for the lion. It was lots of fun. The children we confident individuals and able to choose which leaves they would like on their artwork.

Staff then supported by using sticky clear seal to cover the artwork to keep the leaves on the page.

50 Things Outdoors – Barefoot and Bubbles

* CONFIDENT INDIVIDUALS *

The Daisies class enjoyed participating in one of our 50 Things Outdoor activities. They explored the grass in the sensory garden using their bare feet. They all really enjoyed doing this!

* SUCCESSFUL LEARNERS, EFFECTIVE CONTRIBUTORS *

We also took turns blowing bubbles for our friends. Some of us preferred blowing the bubbles and some of us preferred to run around and pop them!

50 things outdoors – Windswept

We explored  wind whilst being outdoors. We experienced the wind on our face and how when it is strong it may blow objects around outside. We made our own wind sock to explore what would happen on a windy day. We took our wind socks outside and watched as the wind blew the tissue paper streamers  at the bottom.  The wind can sometimes blow rubbish into our outdoor area and we are responsible citizens and will tidy up.

50 things outdoors – Birdfeeders

Winter is here so we decided to made a birdfeeder to put in the garden to feed the birds. We used cheerios and threaded them onto a long pipe cleaner. Some people were able to independently try this confidently, Some were holding the pipe cleaner and staff were supporting them to pull them along the pipe cleaner once on it.

50 Things Outdoors – Rain

* SUCCESSFUL LEARNERS, CONFIDENT INDIVIDUALS, RESPONSIBLE CITIZENS *

The Bluebells class participated in one of our 50 Things Outdoor challenges today. We took the opportunity of a rainy day and experienced a rainstorm whilst being appropriately dressed for the weather. We raided the used and found box for a selection of wellies and went to a nearby postbox and sent our Santa letters. We all loved being outside in the rain and jumping in the puddles!
