The ELC children recently enjoyed an incursion with a visit from Nature Play SA.
Spending the entire morning outdoors (graced with some sunshine), the children busied themselves with an array of multi-sensory, play based activities.
Numerous stations were set up on the Nutter Thomas Lawns designed to engage children’s creativity and connections with nature. Children experimented and explored, building and creating with a range of natural materials, including clay sculpting, water colour painting, water runs, magic potions making, cubby building and loose parts play.
This immersive free-play experience developed students’ connection to nature by exploring local flora and fauna, storytelling through nature and sensory play. Students used their agency to manage their time and move between activities of interest. The experience gave children the opportunity to explore endless possibilities independently or collaboratively.
It was wonderful to see the children so engrossed and excited with their creations. Thank you to Nature Play SA, who again gave our children such a marvellous morning of exploration.
