Students were so motivated by these learning activities being able to have an outdoor classroom day again. They were excited on Monday when they saw that we had included this in the weekly program and their excitement grew as we got closer and closer.
As per normal many students had begun their daily learning before our scheduled google meet which was great as we were able to discuss and share examples of what students had been doing and this helped others to get ideas.
HOWEVER - The day was very very wet and wild and most of the activities needed to be moved indoors. This did not deter students in the slightest.
A number of students came up with their own activities including making tools and weapons for the wild things, this was encouraged but students were also encouraged to think and talk about how these related to Te Whare Tapa Wha and to talk about what they felt they were learning as they created these artefacts.
