In Outdoor Learning this week P4 all groups visited Holyrood Park to play games and develop skills in giving and following directions. We played ‘Secret Stone’ where we worked together as a team and developed and tested strategies. We played ‘Find my Tree’ with eyes shut then played again using direction vocabulary. We introduced quarter turns and used them with prior knowledge of clockwise and anticlockwise.

Group 1 are the final group to explore and use the terms Agree, Build and Challenge for the talking and listening game ‘Would you Rather’. We used sentence stems to scaffold the discussion. For example:

Agree: ‘The reason I agree with……is because…..’

Build: In addition to ……..’s point, I’d like to add……….’

Challenge: I disagree with…… because……..’
