This week Year 2 have been making the most of the sunny weather and enjoying learning outside. We are taking part in The Wildlife Trusts 30 Days Wild challenge. Each day the classes choose something to do outside. So far they have chosen to feel the grass with their feet, eat their fruit and snack outside and use natural materials to make sculptures.
At lunchtime the children have been very enthusiastic about some of the new outdoor activities on offer. A particular favourite has been playing ‘tug of war’.
How you can support your child at home
- Get your child(ren) involved in planning activities they would like to do outside. It could be something small such as looking at the clouds to see what shapes and pictures you can see, or something bigger, such as planning a picnic. Your child might like to be involved in the planning and preparation of the picnic as well as the taking part!
- Play games which involve winning and losing. This could be an outside game, such as a penalty shootout, or it could be a board game.
