Year 1 Outdoor Week Begins

Today marked the beginning of Outdoor Week for Year 1. Starting our journey into the woods children were given cards to find something that linked to different senses. The cards included: snap, green, smooth, round and yuk! This helped us to begin investigating our surroundings. After that children could explore the woods with binoculars and backpacks, encouraged to look all around them and collect items of interest. 


This afternoon we enjoyed sharing our books out by the pond area with a friend before we created nature sculptures in the style of artists such as Andy Goldsworthy and Martin Hill. Be sure to ask your children what nature sculptures are and how to make them and have a look at the photos below to see examples of their great designs! It was lovely to see and hear children working together to problem solve and compromise on their designs, thinking what else was needed in order to improve them even more. We loved listening to their explanations as to what they had created and why. Why not try these activities at home when you are next out and about, particularly the eye spy with our different senses!


I wonder what else Year 1 will create this week...
