This week dosbarth Mrs Curtis have been planning and designing their outdoor space. We started by measuring the area using trundle wheels, then deciding as a class on the scale to use on the plans.
The next step was to measure the shed and the outdoor classroom, ready to add them to our plans.
Team work was needed for this exercise.
Back in the classroom, each table drew up their scaled plans. They decided where they wanted the different areas to be, including a new cherry tree and what we are going to plant in the planters.
The year 6’s had the job of planting the cherry tree outside the classroom.
The Children in dosbarth Mrs Curtis are happy that they are back in school with their friends. We have been having lessons outside enjoying the new playground and it’s markings, the outdoor classroom and the rainbow picnic benches.
A language, literacy and communication lesson outside. Discussing the reasons for and against children having mobile phones.
