St Mary’s Lower School pupils tackle maths challenges outside for Outdoor Classroom Day

Braving the elements, the Prep and Year 1 girls enjoyed creating patterns and shapes using natural materials. In Year 2, the girls played Bingo, finding number bonds to match digits dotted around the playground as well as completing shape and pattern tasks using natural materials. In the Juniors, Year 3 consolidated their

understanding of direction by using compasses to explore what they could see at different points around the school and then swapping. In Year 4, the girls timed how long it would take to complete a range of energetic tasks (and then scaled up these amounts) as well as creating symmetrical minibeasts using natural resources. At the top end of the school, Years 5 and Year 6 pupils


calculated the height of a range of trees around the school grounds and completed outdoor maths scavenger cards. Director of St Mary’s Lower School, Mrs

Emma Stanhope said: “The girls showed fantastic enthusiasm throughout the day and relished the extra opportunity to take time outdoors to play and learn for Outdoor Classroom Day. At St Mary’s we feel it is important to make time outdoors part of every child’s day with lessons regularly taking place within our nine acres of beautiful grounds, including Geography, Science and Forest School.” June 2021
