Outdoor learning in the warm sunny weather

The humid warmth this afternoon gave us the perfect opportunity to make use of the outdoors. Whilst some of the infants busied themselves building a grass snowman on the field during afternoon playtime, Team Phoenix were working outside on team-based pyramid-building challenges.

With different equipment, the Team Phoenix children had to design and build pyramids, thinking carefully about secret entrances, shape, orientation, and size - and some groups decided to combine skills and materials and negotiate a 'river or desert journey' to transport their bricks across the field to make a larger structure.

Their experience of pyramid building is now forming the basis for writing accounts about how the ancient Egyptians constructed their tombs.
