THE CORE CURRICULUM
ANCIENT ARTS & CRAFT
Eco-friendly and upcycling art as well as general arts allowing the children to express their creativity. Understanding the origins of where art and artists come from, helps us to understand different cultures and gain a greater depth and appreciation of the materials they will be using. Art is a hands-on, fun, creative tool accessible for all ages and abilities and can also aid to build confidence, facilitate empathy, encourage discussions, and can be a calming coping strategy. Art activities have been shown to promote learning and understanding in new ways.
Daily campers will join together to go over the schedule and play short warm-up games. We also take time to share how we are feeling and what may be on their mind, helping children to understand and develop empathy for others.
Strengthening, Improve Flexibility, Endurance, Balance, Coordination, Collaboration, Unwinding and Relaxing the body.
Includes creative movement for body awareness. We use visualizations, silent walks in nature and meditation, which helps to sharpen sensorial skills whilst developing tools for self-care and self-awareness.
Yoga, dance and movement – each morning children are guided through yoga exercises to energize and relax, dance movements to free the mind and body and embodied movement exercises to cultivate mindfulness, body awareness, strength, agility, flexibility and coordination.
We encourage creative and purposeful play that focuses on collaboration, communication and care in a group setting.
PERCUSSIONS & SOUND MEDITATION
The practice session of mindful listening brings children into their whole awareness to the sound waves, rhythm and pace. This helps to release tension and anxiety and expand joy.
