Wild Earthlings Term 1 - Friday (6 months - 6 years)
Welcome to our Weekly play sessions! We are so excited to have you along for the ride this term and look forward to all of the learning that we will be involved in.
Our term runs for ten weeks, beginning on the 4th February and ending on 8th April.
Each session runs from 9:30 - 11:30 each Friday. Bookings are essential as positions are limited.
During this time, the children will have an extended chance to get to know the space, building confidence in their own abilities over time. Providing children with enough time to build connections with their surroundings and eachother is so important in their learning.
Each week, the children will have opportunities to learn by using the many resources provided which can include clay, paint and tools. Depending on the children's interests, we will provide further resources to extend upon this interest. Not only will the children be invited to learn by the tools and man made resources, but the natural world itself. Fallen sticks can become cubby houses, pine needles can becomes blankets for babies, hollow logs can be a cave to explore, a bush track can be an endless adventure.
Each morning we will gather together in a circle to conduct our acknowledgement of country, we will then go through the resources, at which point your children are free to explore the space at their own pace. No pressure, no necessity to get everything done, just pure, child led learning.
This means that on any given day you may encounter; whittling, sawing, hammering, rope climbing, digging, puddle jumping, clay sculpting, storytelling, animal exploration, drawing with charcoal, relaxing beneath a tree, painting, potion making!
This is our aim, to give children the space, time and encouragement needed to learn.
Our sessions run in all weather so please dress appropriately on the day. We will only cancel in the event of severe storms, wind or severe fire danger.
We encourage you to bring unpackaged snacks so that our impact on the environment is minimal
