‘A Stepping Stone into the Future’

WDPS Resilience

Our children learn important skills from being able to recognise the effects of positive and negative words on people to understanding Emotional Intelligence, Multiple Intelligences and Visual, Auditory and Kinaesthetic Learning Styles. 
Returning After Lockdown 

This week we have been delighted to have our children back after lockdown.  Our children have been in our Bushcraft and Allotments and Edible Garden areas working on their mental wellbeing and many Life Skills including: social and emotional, speaking and listening, negotiation, understanding, empathy, creativity and imagination, respect, responsibility, safety, etc - the list is endless.  

During their time in these areas they have worked with tools and been responsible for their own safety and that of others, whilst in the Allotment and Edible Garden.  Making pictures about something that means a lot to them, using loose parts.  Creating small dens for animals we may find in our woodlands, ie. bugs, hares, etc.  Using clay and loose parts to make Guardians for our trees to keep away the goblins.  Exploring, making games and dens. Making pictures using stones as a hammer to transfer the colours from leaves, flowers, berries, etc onto cotton material
