Discussion question: Ask the children what they enjoy the most about being outdoors?
Talk to the children about how to be safe outdoors when completing activities. Explain to children the benefits of working in a team.
Active learning: Split the children into pairs and number them 1 and 2, respectively. Model a game of “follow the leader”. Children will take it in turns to lead their partner from one side of the hall to the other, using different methods of travelling, i.e. skipping, walking, crawling, and jumping. Once they reach the other side of the hall child number 2 will lead and return them to the start.
Orienteering Picture Hunt.
Keep the children in the same group as their active learning. Prior to starting the activity spread out the picture hunt resource cards and provide each group with an answer sheet. Start one group on card one, another on card two and so on.
Explain the rules of the activity to the children (to find all 20 fruit and vegetables and recording the name of them on the sheet as quick as they can) and set the timer!
Remind the children to be positive with each other, to stick together as a team and to use their maths fluency.
Keep a record of each team's completion time and use this to create a leader board. Once all groups have returned check the answers together and declare a winner.
TOP TIP – Set out the resource cards as far as you can as this encourages children to move around more.
TOP TIP – Encourage children to travel around the space at different speeds.
