Kindergarten Explores the Wonders of Nature at Kew Gardens
Posted: 23rd June 2023
Kindergarten recently embarked on an enchanting journey to Kew Gardens. This educational trip provided a sensorial experience, allowing the young learners to engage their senses and deepen their understanding of seeds, plants, and the miracle of growth.
With their sense of sight heightened, the Kindergarteners were filled with awe and curiosity as they explored with magnifying glasses and sketched pictures of leaves and flowers. A visit to the beehive provided an opportunity for the children to be captivated by the buzzing symphony resonating from within the hive. Their eyes widened with excitement as they learned about the roles of bees, from pollination to honey production. Engaging their sense of smell, the children wandered through the fragrant rose garden. Encouraged to explore the tactile aspect of their surroundings, the children reached out to touch the barks of ancient trees. Their little hands brushed against rough and bumpy textures, connecting them to the grandeur and resilience of nature.
The day drew to a close with a delightful picnic beneath the shelter of ancient trees. Laughter and joy filled the air as the children played with their friends, using their imagination to turn the trees into their own little havens or houses. Surrounded by nature’s embrace, they revelled in the sense of freedom and connection that only the great outdoors can provide. As they returned to school, the children carried with them the seeds of knowledge and a love for nature that will continue to grow and flourish for years to come.
