22.10.2018 Squirrel School, exploring the meadow, using tools to make the witches house
Each week the children will visit Squirrel School to explore our outdoor environment. A key value of our Early Years experience is embracing the outdoor environment and the natural world as the third teacher; this supports our Reggio approach to learning. The outdoor environment also promotes a sense of well-being, calm, respectful and nurturing. During Squirrel School sessions the children will have the opportunity to learn about seasonal changes, use tools carefully and respectfully, work creatively using the outdoors as an artistic stimulus. They will identify and name a variety of wild life including birds, animals, insects, flowers and trees. In the role of explorer, the children will light and cook over camp fires throughout the year. They will use ingredients in their cooking that they have foraged for, such as the wild garlic, fennel, elderberries, raspberries, apples and much more.
