Wild Group

Today Hannah went to a new home schooling group called Wild Group. The group is an all day event once a week and is held in a lovely enclosed garden with a small hall and kitchen. The group is based around nature and the outdoors. For this first week the children completed a map of the gardens, and chose a 'Magic Spot' in the garden to be their own space. They will observe all the seasonal changes monthly from their spots. They had a Circle Time after lunch where they all shared something interesting from their week (Hannah told her friends all about Sydney visiting) and they finished the session by drawing a view of the gardens from their Magic Spot.

Excited to start.

Hannah said that this was the best group she'd been to and is really looking forward to the next session!
