We are extremely fortunate at Sheldwich that our school is set within a truely beautiful environment. An environment that enables us to support and develop our curriculum for inspirational learning. During the past year we have been researching how we can embed 'Nature's Principles of Harmony' into our teaching and learning.
Staff have attended training sessions at school and have taken part in The Prince's School of Traditional Arts workshops. Harmony is an innovative approach to education that puts creativity and sustainability at the centre, exploring the world from a local to global scale through the process of enquiry and engagement with the natural world. It helps children explain, inspire and address curiosity about Earth and our responsibility to look after it.
So our 'Harmony' journey began, from Little Hedgehogs in our Pre-School to Badgers in Class 6 and the 'Principle of Geometry'. Nature's geometric patterns and forms are all around us and they remind us that the natural world has an order, a rhythm, and a symmetry to it that creates balance and harmony.
