Trees are great for many things, but as any child will know, they are especially good for sticks. And sticks are good for, well, just about anything. Just give a child a bunch of sticks and without any instruction, they’ll prove this to you.
We aim to have an outdoor learning focus on an area of the curriculum each term – this half term it’s maths – here the focus is on shape and space. Using piles of sticks, pupils had to complete the shape and space challenges. We were inside as it was very cold and snowy outside. They had great fun.
