Kingswood Prep Mindfulness Club Explore Japanese Zen Gardens
Pupils at Kingswood Prep have been looking at Japanese gardens at Mindfulness club this week.
The children learnt about the main purpose of a Japanese garden in bringing serenity and nature into our crowded lives.
They are often called ‘zen gardens’.
The pupils were able to put together their own miniature-sized landscape through arrangements of rocks, moss, and water.
The gravel or sand was then raked to represent ripples in water.
Everyone at Mindfulness club enjoyed making their own gardens using sand and items they found in nature.Published: April 10 2019
