Blackheath Prep Explore the Natural World with a Nature Week
The whole school were provided with stimulating experiences to assist with their learning about the environment in which they live.
In response to the growing evidence of the fundamental importance of nature to children, Blackheath Prep School implemented a whole school Nature Week earlier this term.
Every class went out for a day to explore the natural world and learn about the environment in which they live. Greenwich Park, Hyde Park, Kew Gardens and Sevenoaks Wildlife Reserve provided some of the habitats they explored.
The children learnt how to identify trees, calculate their height and age and create their own trees using natural materials. Representatives from each class shared their experiences of being ‘out and about’ in a whole school assembly at the end of the week. Additionally, the Gifted and Talented focus this year is Science and the most able scientists in the school investigated nature in the local area and created journey sticks.Published: April 26 2017
