Earth Matters - June 2021 by Planet & People
Dear Planet People
Learn - Here's what's new!
This month we are trying something new to spread the Planet & People message:
'LOVE the Earth!'
We have started Planet Action Workshops based on the Planet Action Kit. You can sign up to Monday sessions for the home-ed community and weekend sessions too. Suitable for children from (approx.) 4 - 11 years old, do come and join us if you are within striking distance of Mid-Devon, we'd love to meet you!
So far, we’ve been observing pond life, learning about ecological balance through Jenga, playing in the mud kitchen, going on wildlife safaris, building bug hubs and much more. We are in the pilot phase at the moment - learning loads and having a great time too. Plenty of food for thought and interesting discussions along the way too. Observe - Our wonderful world!
During one of our Planet Action workshops this week, we took the children for a nature walk - first they went around the loop; through the orchard, past the pond, the buffer zone and on through the paddock as fast as they could. Secondly we encouraged them to slow right down.
It was amazing just how much we saw the second time around, and the exciting thing is, we could walk it at another time of day or later in the year and we would see completely different species and behaviour, all in just a short walk.
