Outdoor Adventures

We have been having fun learning outdoors this week:

Cooking and eating BBQ sausages. Yum!

Visiting Staglands.

 A parent helper took this photo, the baby guinea pigs at Staglands were adorable!

Making and flying kites.

Treasure hunting. We followed the clues to the sandpit and dug up gold doubloons.

River walking (and watching M-Block Raft Race).

Rock art (click to see our ladybug rock painting). We used pastels to draw colourful designs on these rocks, then painted water-based sealant over the top.

We were meant to picnic at Harcourt Park, but unfortunately the weather was not quite up to scratch.

Learning outside the classroom has lots of benefits:

  • Opportunities to satisfy curiosity and explore the world.
  • Experiences to engage in creative activity.
  • Improved self-confidence and risk-taking.
  • First hand experience in real-life situations.
  • Encourages independence and self-reliance.
  • Establishes a team building attitude and support cooperative learning skills. 
Plus we had a week of fantastic photo opportunities!
