Outdoor learning

Over the next 2 weeks each class is having an outdoor learning day. If you are at home, you could have a go at these activities in your garden.

- go on a mini-beast hunt. 

- create a picture out of nature.

- find out the different types of plants in your garden. 

- draw pictures of anything interesting in your garden. 

- challenge your self to do a scavenger hunt. Maybe you could find things which are a certain colour, or begin with a certain letter. 


This week we will be forming nouns by adding the suffix- 'ness' (see the presentation in the attachments)
