Early Years Adventures

The Early Years students have settled in very quickly. So quickly, we were able to have our first forest adventures this week. The students learned about walking and road safety before setting off. On the way, they observed their surroundings and talked about position and direction.

Once they arrived at the forest, they ate a snack and learned about the forest boundaries, gaining an understanding of how to keep themselves safe. With their understanding of safety, they set off to engage in self-directed play. The children had access to a wide range of swings and balancing ropes, creating their own games. They climbed and slid down steep hills and found some trees to climb and swing in. 

Many children were interested in exploring their natural surroundings, such as bug and bird hunting. Students in Early Years participate in daily reflective practice by creating drawings of their day (Play Stories) and engaging in group discussions using photos and videos (Play Sharing). During Play Story and Play Sharing time, students enthusiastically reflected on and talked about their forest experiences. 

“We played a game. I have the swing and I push it really high. Everyone has to try to catch it. Who catches it wins some points!” Henri, Age 5.
