Outdoor Learning
Karen wanted the children to explore the school outdoor spaces. They took turn to complete different activities: playing football on the field, making a ladder using different knots and climbing up the ladder, raking leaves, play hide and seek in the garden.
The children worked as a team and explored different areas. They enjoyed free play, which encouraged them to interact in a natural way.
Children learnt about tertiary colours, mixed primary colours colours to make secondary colours and then tertiary colours using poster paint.
Children mixed primary colour poster paints to complete their own colour wheels.
