Outdoor Learning

Owl School activities for this half- term are based on woodland bush craft skills and a range of environmental craft based tasks. Pupils will get the opportunity to learn practical tasks such as how to follow tracking symbols, use a compass, create some temporary shelters, learn key survival skills and design their own miniature garden.

The emphasis for this term is on developing peer collaboration, as pupils will tackle many of these tasks in pairs or as part of small teams sharing resources and space.  The environmental tasks seek to make pupils aware of how everyday items can be recycled and reused. Towards the end of the Term, pupils will get the chance to take part in several environmental activities linked to the planned Environmental Day on the 28th June.  Pupils’ will also get the chance to take part in a giant litter pick linked to this themed day and hopefully help to highlight the hazards litter poses to the natural environment.

As the weather improves, we will ensure that pupils have suitable sunscreen for working outdoors, so if you have a particular sunscreen your child prefers and hat please ensure they have it in school.  Should you have any other questions please contact me n.trivett@marchant-holliday.co.uk or record a message in your pupils’ Home School Link Book.
