Chapman Kindergarten Learn through Nature Play

Children at BushkidsChildren at BushkidsChildren at Bushkids Chapman Kindergarten Learn through Nature Play

Chapman Primary School’s Bush Kids is a program designed for students to learn ‘hands on’ from developing skills in the natural environment. Now in its second year, kindergarten students spend every Wednesday afternoon during term three in a defined area on nearby Cooleman Ridge playing in all kinds of weather. Students investigate plants and animals they find in the bush, make use of natural resources and observe the changing seasons and bring their learning experiences back to the class to share. On a recent rainy Wednesday, more than 80 students splashed in muddy puddles, collected worms and clambered over boulders and fallen rocks and had great fun. Parents have been very supportive of the program, despite the mud marks students may take home. The Bush Kids program is based on the forest school learning style developed in Wisconsin in the United States in the 1920s. The concept spread to Sweden and Denmark and was introduced to the UK during the 1990s.

Awesome August is almost over and what fun it has been. Yesterday’s Book Week assembly was a wonderful celebration of our love of books. The variety of costumes worn by children from preschool to year 6 and by our teachers, thoroughly embraced this  year’s theme “Australia! Story Country”. We had heros, gumnuts, bounty riders, koalas, wombats and even Grandma Poss! We had a great day.
