Autumn 2017 Outdoor Learning Projects – Year 4

Year four and Five have been busy using our Outdoor Learning Area to Explore the Basic needs of people across the World.

Year Four classes have all spent sessions creating their own Rainforest Village.

This has included building two tree houses, using their knots and lashings to build, floors, ladders and simple furniture.

The children have learnt to light a cooking fire safely, and cooked the vegetables planted earlier in the year like the subsistence farmers of the Amazon.


One group even invented their own rainforest dance to save the trees. They also made Rainforest Jewellery used for bartering to obtain the tools they needed to build the tree houses.
