Welly Walk Wanderers!

Ghyll Royd Pre-School child finds leaf on welly walk

On Wednesdays, Ghyll Royd Pre-School children enjoy an afternoon Welly Walk! The Walks are themed with the children’s learning topic and are always a highly enjoyable midweek activity.

Last week, Little Adventurers and Great Explorers combined their welly walks with numeracy!

Little Adventurers were set a task to find 5 different objects around the grounds. Mrs Davis and Mrs Watson’s list asked for:

  • 1 feather
  • 2 conkers
  • 3 sticks
  • 4 helicopter seeds
  • 5 leaves

The activity was a matching activity which also helped the children to count from 1-5. Once the children had found one of the objects, they would stick them to the board. Brilliant work!

Great Explorers went on a Maths themed Welly Walk. The children each had a bumbag and an Autumnal objects checklist. They headed out to explore the school grounds and hunt for objects. The collected pieces were brought back to the playground and sorted into a graph. The children split their objects into colours and counted. Working as a team, the Great Explorers counted up to 17!
