Outdoor learning

Monday 26 March 2018

All year 1 and 2 classes were excited to take a look at the newly renovated pond and wildlife area. We believe there are many benefits from taking learning outside and the English Outdoor Council agree, stating that exposure to the natural environment is beneficial to human health by ‘enhancing personal and social communication skills, increasing physical health, enhancing mental and spiritual health and enhancing spiritual, sensory, and aesthetic awareness.’

We counted flies, trees, daffodils and other natural features to learn how to make tally charts and count in fives.

You can help at home by counting things around your house or garden and record the results using a tally chart.
