Camping - The Colourful World around me - 3rd September 2021
Visualisation and role play enhance critical thinking and analytical acumen. When situations are consciously created, there is mental imagery and greater contextual understanding. In a simulated experience, alongside elements of fun and excitement, competencies to prepare and respond to a specific situation are also developed. Under the module ‘The Colourful World Around Me’, the students of Nursery imagined how the world would look at night, from the glittering stars to the shining moon. They equipped their tents with all the essentials they felt they would need and enjoyed creating a apace for themselves in the wilderness. There were many giggles and gasps as they pretended to spot trees, and even animals, outside their tents. They collected twigs and sticks to build a bonfire to gather around and shake a leg. Camping is all about teamwork. It builds essential life-skills as well as a sense of community through the setting up of tents, cooking meals, playing games, reading and storytelling. Not only did this experience bring them closer to their peers, but also to nature and a more natural way of living.
