This week in Outdoor Learning we had the sun on our side and had a wonderful time exploring all the different things we could find outside!
Today we learnt how to find the compass points in the wildlife! We first learnt to put sticks in the group to find the shadow and mark the end of it. We then used a needle, a magnet, a leaf and water. We used the magnet to stroke the needle in the same direct around 80 times, we then balanced the needle on the leaf and then waited for it to spin on the water to face north. We were all amazing at it and majority of us would survive if we were deserted in the wildlife! Go us!
We made some great boggot’s in the secret garden. We worked so well with our partners to mould an alien out of clay and attach it to different trees. We added detail by using natural resources. They look fab.
We began the day by searching for lots of different things, for example moss, lichen, skeleton leaves and grass. We did so well as we managed to find majority of the things on the list which Sarah said was amazing as it has been so cold recently!
