Outdoor Learning

With our focus this week on Mental Health, P6 decided to get outside into the fresh air and play some Music! The children have been working on rhythm and creating little rhymes to keep us in time. We hope you enjoy our latest one 'A Haunted House'. 
Look out in the woods for a wicked old witch with SINISTER cat! 
As part of our ongoing commitment to invest in the learning experiences of our pupils we were delighted to open up this week our  Quiet Chalet. This very special place will be a little haven of peace and quiet for pupils who prefer to have a break from the hustle and bustle of play times . 
Next time you are in school ask a member of staff and we will be delighted to give you a closer look .

Outdoor Classroom Day 2021

Primary 3 visited the woodland during their Maths lesson today. They measured natural materials using cm on a measuring tape and they also tried to step/jump the length of one metre to use this to help them estimate longer lengths.

P5 completed some lovely art pieces inspired by nature ❤️❤️❤️

Last Thursday was our first day at Hazelwood Nature Rangers. We spent our time getting to know our environment. We found a great tree to climb, looked for the best skimming pebbles and splashed about in mud and the pond. We talked about how to keep safe as we have fun. We returned to the school building tired but incredibly happy and chatty. There’s going to be marshmallows and a fire next week!

Exploring the woodland contributes to building resilience, friendship, learning new tasks and working as a part of a team. All this takes place through play and the children don't even know they are learning!
