Nature Data Collection

Can you estimate the percentage of children in the UK who cannot identify an oak leaf? I have been carrying out little surveys in the classes I’ve been teaching.

Depending on the intensity of the planning left, it’s always an exciting adventure to have the opportunity to get the kids out of class into nature.

The other day I visited a wonderful wildlife garden in a school and the class hadn’t been outside once this term to visit it.
Another school has an entire woodland area, and again the kids hadn’t stepped on a single twig. One teacher had been requested to no longer take his kids there as it was eating into too much curriculum time.
This isn’t true of many lovely schools I visit, however there are many not appreciating the benefits of getting kids outdoors.
What’s the impact of this nature disconnection?
Each evening, I lay out my supply teaching clothes, CRB lanyard, and an oak leaf for my own data nature connection collection.
Will share my statistically unreliable findings soon ūüėČ

Shrove Tuesday – Do you give a Toss?

 

A Message for my daughter and maybe yours too?

What is Shrove Tuesday?

Going through this week’s calendar and getting organised, I note it’s pancake day on Tuesday. I’ve taught the meaning of this to kids over the years in different schools, and remember that the word ¬†shrove¬†is linked to being shriven from sin. In past times there was a call to confession with the pancake bell.

Fasting

Some research suggests that people used up their store cupboard ingredients in the pancakes,  so they were eaten before the 40 fasting period of Lent. Other reading points to the ingredients having pagan symbolism.

I feel so bad

In my youthful, naive, fresh teaching days I used to talk¬†to the children about giving up things for Lent, ‘so kids what are you going to give up, what sins/wrongs are you committing that need to be put right?’ now I’d¬†say ‘what’s going right for you that you could explore further, what value could you add to self ana¬† others?’

Stop beating yourself up

Giving up things just makes us think of them even more and we might even start to crave them and then feel ‘bad’ when we give in. ¬†I’m rather bored of either feeling good and bad and hearing talk of feeling guilty because I ate this or did that. I’d rather not teach kids to beat themselves up. Let’s teach them about balance. ¬†I wrote about a blog about developing an abundance mindset¬†here.untitled-design-5

How can we ‘add’ more value?

My 10 year old daughter sometimes tells me she’s fat. I’ve been so careful about only celebrating our bodies, I’ve never spoken of going on a diet or asked whether my bum looks big in this.¬†¬†Yet she’s picking up messages about image and comparcompa from all around – school, the TV, books etc. I ask her what can she do more of that’s good for her, what does she enjoy, what makes her feel good and importantly I need to role model this myself.¬†

Happy Tossing.
