We had a great day at the Otley Chevin yesterday, despite a dubious forecast the weather was perfect for a ramble through the woods.
We were able to identify many of the features we have been learning about in class from the geology dating back to the Carboniferous period, to identifying mini-beasts using our swatches.
The children were able to put their knowledge of classification keys into good practise using this skill to identify some of the trees at the Chevin.
We visited the exact location which inspired James Bywood’s Otley Chevin prints and had a go at one of our own using a limited colour palette to create shade and perspective.
The children really engaged with the learning and we had a fantastic day in the great outdoors.
