Year 6 Having Fun with Learning Outside the Classroom

Having read and chatted about the inspirational poem 'Jabberwocky' by Lewis Carroll in their English lesson, our Year 6 children ventured deep into our school grounds to create their very own Jabberwocky style creature.  Using material found naturally in the school grounds the children worked collaboratively with a partner to create their very own mythical animal.  The children also thought about its habitat, any potential predators and how it might defend itself, which linked well with the Science curriculum.  In a different LOC lesson they looked at Green Men. A Green Man is a sculpture, or other representation of a face surrounded by or made from leaves. It is primarily interpreted as a symbol of rebirth, representing the cycle of growth each spring. Following this inspiration, our Year 6 children created their very own Green Men sculptures using clay and natural foliage found in the grounds. The results were very convincing!
