Outdoor Learning - Year 3
Year 3 were able to enjoy their first outdoor session since they last had the sessions at the beginning of Covid.
Due to the extreme weather, the original plan was adapted to include water activities and understanding the importance of teamwork.
The children reminded themselves of the rules and boundaries when working outside before joining an activity of finding their name from a collection of the class names and realising that finding just one name and giving it to the correct person, was better and quicker than just looking for you name.
The teamwork focus continued when asked to fill up the ‘leaking guttering’ with water to get the ping pong ball out and the children realised by working as a team to fill the holes, the water remained in the guttering and the ping pong ball rose to the top!
The water escaping from the holes did have its benefits however, especially on such a hot September Friday afternoon!
