Parachutes outdoors are great!

Tuesday, 20 November 2012

Been a bit busy indoors recently with concert rehearsals and other indoor activities!  Need to get outside soon!  Plans are to go out to woods this week and make up our own woodland games - we are doing instructional writing at the moment so can link this in to our literacy work.  

Next Friday (30th Nov) is St Andrew's day in Scotland and Scottish Book week so am thinking up ideas to celebrate both outside. Any ideas welcome!  

May have an outdoor rehearsal for our Christmas concert!  That would be good for voice projection etc!  The play is called, "The Little Match Girl" so is set outdoors on a cold day - perfect for getting into role!

Off to plan some more and hope to post more activities soon.

Spooky Nature

Today, a freezing cold, sunny day,  we went outside and up to the woods to play some games of "Bat and Moth" which the class love then followed a spooky nature trail...

The pupils followed the trail, memorising the phrases and objects as they went, then made a list in their outdoor notebooks.  Once finished they worked in pairs to make poems using the objects and phrases.

Great fun!

The stickers came from the "Nature Detectives" website - very useful site for ideas and resources.

Next outdoor activity - mini rockets and art work for Bonfire Night...
