Today Shane in Green class organised a wonderful outdoor classroom session for some of the classes on the senior end of the school. It was a bright crisp day and with coats on, it could not have been better weather to be outside.
Shane had collected lots of natural materials from his locality, pebbles and stones from the beach, driftwood along the banks of the river, bark from the local woods and we also used what was available in our own playground- leaves, flowers and seedpods.
After handling the small light stones and the larger heavier ones some students built Cairns on the ground, as others built them on their knees while in their wheelchairs.
All students then went exploring to find some natural materials for a wild mobile.
Finally we made a mandala using the stones, cut timber, bark and gathered leaves.
A really super afternoon of creative learning in our outside classroom, with much thanks to Shane.
