Outdoor learning in P3/4/5

This week, P3/4/5 were budding artists. Using chalk, they had to draw a portrait of their partner. We discussed how shape could help us – deciding that a portrait should have an oval head, rectangular neck and shoulders, then other shapes for the facial features. It was chilly outside, but we had lots of fun creating our chalk art! Thanks Amber who took most of the photos for us to share with you all.

Outdoor learning P6/7

Today we abandoned our planned lesson and decided to make the most of the frost! Groups were challenged to create a giant drawing that would be seen from above, using only their feet and the frost below.
Afterwards, pupils discussed which problem solving strategies they’d used. This included Try a Simpler Case, Guess Check and Improve and Work Together.
