Nature School - Wilderness Immersion Day - Wednesday December 13th

ABOUT

Nature School as usual however we will be at a different location with different learning opportunities.

DETAILS

Meet in the car park at St Lukes Primary School before walking across the road to Yellagonga Regional Park.

The day will be guided by the children's interest and as learning opportunities present themselves e.g animal tracks, edible & medicinal foods, traditional uses of plants, climbing trees etc.

WHAT TO BRING

- plenty of drinking water (there will be nowhere to fill up)

- any food or snacks (rubbish must be taken home)

- footwear is optional (there can be broken glass and sharp sticks & leaves)

- appropriate clothing for the weather (we will be outside the entire time)

ABOUT NATURE SCHOOL

Wild Movement Perth's Nature School is an attempt to recreate some of the conditions that children would have experienced and lived in throughout the past 300,000 years of Homo Sapiens evolution.

Anthropologists report that children (once old enough to spend large amounts of time away from their mother) become part of a "playgroup" and are not expected to provide, or do a large amount of serious work until their mid to late teens.

Children naturally learn and teach themselves through observation, play and exploration. Due to the fact that we now live indoors in small nuclear family's disconnected from nature, children no longer have the ability to observe, play in and explore natural environments like in the past.

At our Nature School children will not be told what to do or be given a series of activities that they must complete, they will however have the opportunity take part in any activities that may be happening on the day.

ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

Within Nature School we have elementary school which is based on the elements Earth, Water, Air, Fire and Movement. In Elementary School children have the opportunity to learn practical skills related to each element.

EARTH - make string/rope, ave a basket, identify edible plants, make and use a bow and arrow etc.

WATER - make a water proof drinking container, make a wooden burn out bowl for boiling water in, learn how to purify water etc.

AIR - build a primitive shelter, make sandals, make primitive sunscreen etc.

FIRE - make a fire by friction kit, prepare and start a fire, fire safety etc.

MOVEMENT - learn, practice and develop practical natural movement skills such as climbing, jumping, balancing etc.

Each week there will be different activities and opportunities for the children to learn through:

- playing and exploring the outdoor jungle gym (crawling, climbing, balancing, jumping, games, etc).

- practicing earth skills in the primitive bush-crafting shelter (cordage making, basketry, fire by friction, weapon and tool making, etc).

- lending a hand next door at Woodstone Organic Farm (planting seedlings, preparing soil, harvesting fruit & vegetables, feeding animals, etc).

- identifying and foraging edible and medicinal weeds next door at Ellenby Tree Farm (dandelion, chickweed, wild lettuce, etc).

- philosophical discussions about humans place within nature and how we fit in as well as ways that we can responsibly interact with it.

- endless free time to interact with children of all ages in a natural environment.

The children's own curiosity, imagination and interests may lead them to take on personal projects of their own such as making a bow and arrow, weaving a basket etc, these projects can be taken home and brought back each week to be worked on if guidance and or assistance is needed.

Children will be encouraged to spend time out in nature in order to draw inspiration for and find materials for their projects such as feathers, sticks, rocks etc.

PARENTS

At the moment it is required to have at least one parent or guardian present (although as invisible as possible) for each child or group of children.

In the future if there is enough demand we hope to be able to add on extra days during the week and for longer hours each time, eventually allowing children to be dropped off and picked up.
