Sungazers POLO Day – outdoor learning

We have been completing lots of great outdoor learning activities for POLO day.  We enjoyed exploring the water wheel for science and playing games with water balloons.  We also had our snack outside and had fun with the parachute and making dens.

POLO Day Activities

*Confident Individuals    *Effective Contributors

We did some activities this week ahead of POLO Day. We painted patterns with water and watered our planter where we are growing onions, potatoes, carrots, strawberries, nasturtiums and sweet peas. Our gladioli bulbs are starting to grow too. We made symmetrical butterfly pictures in anticipation of making a large symmetrical floor pattern today. Today we also made a water wheel (which worked really well!) and created nature’s crowns.

Confident Individuals – Outdoor Numeracy

The Transition class were Confident Individuals this week when taking part in outdoor numeracy. The rolled a die and were sent on a hunt to find the same number of things within different categories. Some examples were ‘four things that are different’ and ‘one thing that has a smell’. The boys worked very hard and were very confident of their answers – well done!

Confident Individuals – HWB food and food labels

During Health and Wellbeing time in class the Transition boys were Confident Individuals when looking at food labels and selecting healthy foods. Some boys played top trumps with the labels trying to select foods that had the best salt, fat and sugar content. The rest of the class helped plan a celebration menu but tried their best to make it balanced and mostly healthy. I think fizzy juice was snuck onto the list!
