The Outdoor symphony activity encourages children to listen to everything going on outside and think about different ways of recreating and recording the sounds.
Children turn off indoor sounds, open the window, close their eyes and listen carefully. What can they hear? Are there any birds? Can they recreate the sounds? What would the sounds look like if they wrote them down, or drew them?
This activity is brought to you from School Grounds North East. The aim of School Grounds North East is to help individuals, schools and settings to maximise the potential of their outdoor spaces for learning and play, take the curriculum outdoors, and ultimately achieve outstanding outdoor provision.
