I had the absolute pleasure to be on duty at lunchtime and join the children in a wriggly exploration. Students from Nursery all the way through to Year 6 decided that the interest of the lunch hour was worms. There was digging, there were staff jumping, there was laughter and fun and lots of holes to find our wriggly friends.
During this time, it was amazing to see the children working together and showing all school values. I was so very proud of them. It was also lovely to see children coming together out in nature and exploring their world. The learning that was happening through play was incredible and extended into learning in the classroom, Year 1 now have a wormery and we cannot wait for updates. Ideas were flowing for wormery’s, finding out how to look after worms, what will they eat? what do they need to live? Not only was learning evident but the wellbeing of the children was definitely something to be recognised and celebrated. They were smiling, taking a break, breathing in fresh air, moving around, talking and listening, they were free to just be. It was a joy to be a part of.
Until our next adventure . . .
