Outdoor learning ideas. 


Plant a seed


Signs of spring - Make a list of the things that spring is:
List 1: What things LOOK spring?
List 2: What things SOUND spring?
List 3: What things SMELL spring?
List 4: How does spring FEEL ?
List 5: What makes YOU FEEL spring?
List 6: What things TASTE spring?
seem spring?


Ask the learners to write a response to the list - and discuss their observation of spring.


Design and then keep a weather diary for the week: when you wake up and when you go to bed.


Go on a mini-beast hunt outside your home : draw or record what you find. The children can discuss the beasts and
bugs they find - and why they are shaped the way they are.


Research, learn and prepare to teach others in school a game that your gran, parents or neighbours used to play.
