Enthuse children about wildlife for 30 Days Wild

I spent this morning at the local primary school teaching creative writing classes in the school garden! We had a great tine! I was very impressed by the children's enthusiasm for finding things in the garden! The workshops were part of the Sharing Secrets Festival so I focussed in finding secrets in the gardens! The children found ladybirds on the plants, bees buzzing round the garden and two, no three, no in fact four goldfish hiding in the weeds in the pond! The first class also spent time with the rabbits who at that point in the day were lively and friendly, though by the time the second class went out, all the rabbits were either asleep or hiding! The children drew and wrote about what they saw, creating some lovely pieces of art work in the process.

Everyone enjoyed the chance to be outside and I think all the pupils developed their observation skills (as well as their writing and drawing) in the process!

___ So often I've seen the faces, the eyes and minds that grow as the young watch life, that society of chipmunks, rabbits, squirrels, birds, and all plans of nature. Here, nature has been brought to those eyes and minds... minds that have been opened by you; the start. That magnetic magic of nature itself, always continues its lessons. Grand_!
