One of my favourite things about my own school days was the presence of a ‘nature table’ in several classes, and this is something that children in my class still enjoy today. It’s bright, colourful, changeable and interactive. With so many colours appearing and nature changing daily, Spring is an especially good time for this. One nice idea can be to provide some spotter cards or scavenger hunts for children to follow if they want to, either at playtimes or with a TA perhaps. You could even use such an activity as a stimulus for art or writing perhaps. Here is an example, focusing on some of the commonly seen signs of Spring present in many school grounds. Feel free to use as you wish; I’ve laminated some and keep them on my nature table.
