Brave the Elements at Cardonald Primary School
A whole school outdoor storytelling and arts project with Story Teller Dan Serridge.
The two week outdoor learning project was planned to meet the particular development needs of the school. The linked sequence of lessons around the themes of air, water, fire and earth were all practical and interactive. They were used to produce large-scale artworks, using foraged materials. Children played with mud and water; they built wind catchers, towers and set a camp-fire. The culmination of the project was to make a book from the artwork to celebrate the experience. This project supported the school to gain confidence in working successfully outdoors.
