Outdoor Learning in P1!

Today we had a great time in the woods together! We have discovered the ‘Leaf Pit’ and practiced assessing risk before jumping, rolling and sliding in. Ronan had spotted a tree with a big root that had grown around the trunk and so some of us tried tip toeing around the tree without putting our feet on the ground. We discovered a few little creatures that live in the wood and some of us had a go at gently holding them. We found a ‘Squeezy Tree’ that some of us wanted to climb through. I loved hearing all of the encouragement you gave each other, Malia and Eilidh did a great job of coaching Alice on how to climb through the gap. We came together and all had our snack and a wee drink of hot chocolate to warm us up and fill us up with more energy for pattern making! We collected, named and sorted lots of natural objects before creating our own simple patterns. Before we walked home we sat quietly and closed our eyes and tried to hear 5 sounds around us, maybe you could try this next time you are in the woods together?

When we got back to school we noticed that one of our team had a tick. Please make sure you do a proper tick check on a Monday evening and remove any ticks you discover as soon as possible. Here is a link to a really useful leaflet about ticks produced by Highland Council.

It was great to see so many of you prepared for the changeable Scottish weather today! Lots of you have obviously visited Lidl who have a great stock of kids waterproofs at the moment!

This company is closing down and have a great sale on some super waterproofs, they go up to age 7 so they might fit some of our more smaller learners! https://www.togz.co.uk/
