Harmony with Nature
A week dedicated to learning how to move in nature: how to respect and discover our environment. Artwork and stories related to nature build up the theme of our Nature projects. Every adventure is described in a Journal, with illustrations and new words learnt in English. Amongst the activities that take place outdoors there’s orienteering, archery, treasure hunts, trekking, a night camping out in tents. We start preparing for the long walk which includes the night out, by showing the children how to read a map, tracing pathways and learning how to use a compass.
We set off for our walk in teams because in order to reach the campsite destination the kids have to find their way utilizing their orienteering skills. Once at the campsite, we all join efforts to set up the tents for the night and then take turns practicing some archery. We all share the excitement of having dinner sitting around the fire under the stars!
During the last days of the week the kids spend time developing and completing their artwork and filling in their journals – without neglecting time for team games and moments of relax in the pool.
Nature Project: 21 – 27 June 2020 (age 8 to 12)
All activities will be tied to outdoor life – team games, trekking, orienteering, camping, drawing and painting, singing and music. The children will explore ways of representing the equilibrium observed in nature through various forms of art and body expression.
This week provides kids with a double immersion, one in the lush nature of Umbria and the second in the English Language which has a leading role during this holiday thanks to Arteaparte’s mother-tongue staff.
