Exciting writing - camp set up outside - activity ideas?

Discussion in 'Primary' started by nqtworcester, Sep 12, 2011.

  1. Each year group in our school are having one evening where they stay late in school and explore an already set up camping area (our staff meeting task this week!) which then will hopefully lead onto some exciting writing!

    Some teachers are struggling to think of ideas that will keep children entertained for up to three hours - especially the KS2 children.

    We've had the general ideas of leaving clues for children to decide who has visited, but this wont last too long - what else can people think of? Ideas can be suitable for any age? We will all be eating (jacket potatoes) but theres a good chunk of time where some teachers (who dont particularily want to sing Kumbaya) are struggling to fill!

    Any help would be very appreciated!

  2. make hand and/or footprints in soft ground and then make a plaster cast (like a detective!) question being: whose hand/foot print? Could lead to some good fiction writing or instructions on how to make a plaster cast.
