Kids and Schools
Meeting the Needs of Growing Humans
Days of guided wild play and adventure for any age group incorporating story, games, wild movement, awareness challenges, bush skills and sharing circles.
At their core a chance for children to explore with their wild, sovereign self within a culture of connection and support.
In a day we might: gather up and meet each other through, play some natural movement and awareness games, go on a natural 'treasure hunt' with challenges and nature knowledge woven in, learn or practice skills such as fire, shelter, cordage, knife use etc, have time to explore and play un-directed, and regather for a formal closing/gratitude circle.
Join one of our days or request one for your community.
IN SCHOOL 'NATURAL CONNECTIONS' PROGRAM
A one-off or weekly program in which children are engaged in experiences that cultivate a Sustainable Mindset.
The program would take place within, and be based around adventures and experiences in a natural place (e.g. natural playground areas, parks, beaches etc). It would foster natural connections by combining elements of storytelling, play, movement, ecological understanding, creativity and sensory awareness.
It has links to most areas of the Australian Curriculum - particularly Science, Wellbeing, Spirituality (earth connection), PDHPE and Humanities, and can be adapted to any age group, even better mixed-age to promote peer learning and mentoring/leadership skills.
Critical and Creative thinking - through group and individual learning challenges that demand such thinking
Personal and Social Capability - through sharing circles, group based learning and mindfulness activities
Ethical Understanding - through developing a positive and empowered relationship to their natural environment and the earth.
Cross Curriculum Priorities
Sustainability - a strong emphasis on understanding, appreciating and being a custodian of their local and global environment.
