A typical day might look like:
Morning Forest School Session 9:30-11:30am
Forest Schooling led by the children at Petrie Creek. Children learn through mainly unstructured play in our beautiful creek space. Activities that may be included throughout each term include fire, knots and lashings, whittling, shelter building and nature craft and exploration. Each session includes an invitation/provocation to learn art, science, english, maths, geography, geology, sustainability, environment, biology and much more through and in nature. Children can choose whether they want to partake in any activity or would prefer to play freely.
In Term 4 (weeks 1-5), our focus will be MAKING MUSIC.
Afternoon Workshop 11:30-12:30pm
1 x workshop sessions
These sessions range from gymnastics, yoga, body movement, games, meditation, arts, music, drama, journalling, reading, crafts, STEM, cooking, other specialty workshops (such as Lego, Drumming etc) or community projects - the list is endless, child-led and varies from term to term.
For Term 4, our afternoon workshop will be:
- 1 hour of Gymnastics
Whilst we are unable to run as a drop-off centre just yet, we are able to offer a Share Care agreement for Term 3, whereby parents sign an agreement with another parent to take responsibility of Duty of Care for their child for the duration of the day. This agreement is only available for our Forest School children (6-12 years) at this stage.
