Environment based curriculum to instil a sense of awe and wonder for nature, to stimulate aesthetic awareness and a heightened sense of beauty for the outside world, the Playgroup children were taken for a class activity. An activity which left them connected to nature.
“The most effective kind of education is that a child should play amongst lovely things”…………Plato
The tiny hands planted saplings in pots with the help of school gardeners. Watering the samplings meant serious business for them, as there was no water spilled, no dress got wet, no one pushed anyone, no one slipped; a day filled with excitement. Once back in the class, the kids got busy to understand how air, water, soil, and sun play their roles in caring for the saplings which they had planted. A weekly visit by the children will be undertaken to see the growth of their plants.
