Description

Class Experience

Learning goals for this course are: 
To sow seeds of knowledge which will flourish when the time is right.
To foster an understanding of nature, plants, insects and animals.
To focus the learner's mind on the grandeur and mystery of life by fostering natural wonder.
To begin to understand our place on earth.
To respect self, others, the environment and communities.
To sow the seeds for future guardianship of the natural world.
To understand the importance of our connection with nature, both for our own well-being, and the planet's.
I am a qualified Montessori Teacher, with over 25 years of experience teaching young children.  I have taught in Montessori Schools in the UK and Europe.  I have also run outdoor learning sessions and a Forest School.
Each week there will be an outdoor activity to complete and share with the class.  These will be simple and fun activities to do together with your child, or as a family.  If you have easy access to nature, please visit a different place each week.

Suggested places: a woodland or forest, a local park, an open garden, a community garden project, a river or stream, a hill or mountain, a pond, a street lined with trees, a window box or large planter, outdoor areas of a public or community building, a place where you can sit on grass.  Even weeds growing in a pavement/sidewalk are nature!
You will need to be able to access the outdoors in nature to complete some of the outdoor-based assignments. You will need access to a printer and scissors to be able to use some of the downloads. However, there are other assignments which do not require a printer. You will need colouring pencils/pens to use the colouring sheet. If you collect item while outdoors, please only take things which are no longer living, such as fallen leaves, petals, sticks or pine-cones etc.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
There will be no formal assessment.  Children will share their work in the classroom and are encouraged to comment on other children's work and encourage others in the class community.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Learners are encouraged to spend time outdoors in nature to complete this course, and will need parental assistance and supervision outdoors.
Parents are encouraged to use the outdoor time to foster children's natural curiosity and exploration.
This class is based on some parts of the Montessori Science & Culture (Biology & Geography) curriculum.
