Holy Family College Durban Grade 6 learners constructed a robotic hand for their STEAM lesson on Outdoor Classroom Day, 20th May 2021. During their Natural Science lesson learners conducted an experiment with class teacher, Miss Samuel, by making a filtration system. A decimal fraction relay was played during their Maths lesson.
“When teachers take learning outdoors they report some powerful impacts: Children’s behaviour improves, whole classes are excited to learn, and individuals who feel inhibited by the curriculum often thrive in an outdoor environment. When adults think back to their own happiest memories of childhood, they frequently recall the joy of playing outdoors. Play is not only central to children’s enjoyment of childhood, but teaches critical life skills such as problem-solving, teamwork and creativity.” – www.outdoorclassroomday.co.za
