The Outdoor learning experience – the playground! A beneficial experience in the school grounds without the expense, organisation and staffing of a school trip. Can make the theme more controlled by creating the orienteering yourself. Can make the playground into a suitable pirate environment to any extremes you want. Can control and minimise the health and safety risks. Accessible for all children. The focus will be on the subjects instead of being on a trip.
What are we going to do? Orienteering: In groups Use a map to locate questions They will be using their teamwork and problem solving skills When all the questions have been answered, the teacher will give them one last clue to find the treasure. History: Questions on each marker would have a history link, e.g. based on Grace O’Malley Used as an informal assessment of their knowledge gained in previous lessons.
What happens following the Outdoor learning experience? Art elements- Sculptures / drawings Use water colours. Looking at artists from the time of Grace O’Malley The use of art in interpreting pirate life. PE elements- Creating a dance using pictures and music as a stimulus.
