Primary 5 Outdoor Learning

P5OutdoorEd2021 3 sEvery Friday, come rain or shine, the Primary 5 year group enjoy an afternoon of Outdoor Learning activities.

This week, we were looking at artist and environmentalist, Andy Goldsworthy, who uses natural materials to create stunning pieces of art and sculpture. Once we had studied examples of his work, we went to the Fantastical Forest to create our own pieces, using Goldsworthy as inspiration. In small groups, the girls created their own artwork, carefully crafted from the natural materials that were on offer such as fallen leaves, flowers, twigs and sticks. The girls were careful to consider the importance of using these materials whilst preserving the environment around them.

They were very proud of their artwork and have been inspired to create natural and sustainable pieces of art in other outdoor spaces such as their own gardens and playground.
