Event description

Description

In a world of straighteners and manicured nails, suits and screens it is us ‘the grown ups’ that have lost our way and need to reconnect with childhood and the natural world and ‘Grow Down’. Why? As educators of young people, growing down opens up your senses to how children learn in an outdoor setting, how they feel, how they learn, how they self regulate.Many sessions simply have adults observing and taking notes, this doesn’t show you how a child feels. What makes ‘Best trip ever!!?’. Is a good worksheet or the fact that your teacher fell in a rockpool!? We, as educators, need to grow down not grow up to deliver activities and learning that engages, and let go of some of the constraints we have upon us as adults. We need to connect (or re-connect) in many cases to fully understand the joys of these alternative educational settings. We need to embrace childhood discovery and exploration and free ourselves of the burden and limitations of being an adult and that’s what a Beach Academy Wales Grow Down session is all about. Being childish is compulsory. Do not expect to stay dry or clean. Buckets and spades hugely encouraged.
