Outdoor LearningYear 4: 2019 - 2020

Holt Hall Day 2

by Megan, Lily W, Morgan and Anastasija

This morning, we went to the forest and practised our survival skills. We gutted fish and cut up apples, then we put tin foil on them and put them in the fire that we made. We let them roast. We ate them, and they tasted yum! Some of us weren’t big fans of the sardines, but other people loved them. It was really fun because we all made shelters and fires, and we were working together and sharing ideas.

After lunch, we went back out and went pond dipping. We saw a couple of swans, and they made a heart shape with both of their necks! We took the animals we caught in the lake back to the Big Green Lab. We looked through a microscope and some of them didn’t look real! We looked at them really carefully to see if there was anything interesting about them. We caught a water stick insect that they have only caught 3 times before! They breathe through their tails!

This evening, we are having another film night with popcorn, and doing art. Tomorrow is our last day, we wish we could spend more time here!
