Discovery Garden explorations
Rowan Class have just begun another set of sessions with Miss Claire in the Discovery Garden (April 2015). The children learnt so much in their weekly sessions there previously and its brilliant to be able to have another set of sessions in a different season - there is so much to be explored and it prompts so many areas of learning in such wonderful ways. The children work on a variety of things each week and each session starts with a recap of the previous week and ends with a time for a shared drink and reflective chat so that we can all find out what we want to develop the following week. Children have carried out some excellent co-operative work building dens, making artwork with natural resources, writing treasure hunts, making potions and so much more.
Its also really clear how much the children's confidence, knowledge and social and emotional development have really grown and they work together wonderfully on the Discovery Garden. We hope to organise a session soon where family members can come and share the space with Rowan and they can show you just how much they know.
