Hello. I have a lesson observation on Wednesday. It is a topic lesson. I am doing minibeasts. I only found out about it last thursday. On the wednesday we had been out on a minibeast hunt in the reception nature garden and the children were really excited and loved the lesson! We were looking at habitats, they recorded what they found, where they found it, and why they thought they lived there. Even the LA children achieved really well and ones that arent usually were really keen to write and get involved. I thought about doing this lesson again but not in the nature garden, and using the playground instead for example. I think, that it is going to be difficult to create that "buzz" again and so am looking for a purpose for going out side again or some ideas. I know if i do anything involving pictures or IWB my headteacher will say "couldnt you have taken the children outside?" so to avoid that can anyone help with any ideas. Anything would be GREATLY appreciated. My class is a mixed year 1/2. Many thanks in advance!
