"The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it." (Genesis 2:15)
Taking care of our environment and everything in it is so important. It is a gift that we must all nurture and cherish and teach future generations to do the same. At Rosedale we take every opportunity to do this through our exciting and varied curriculum and extra curricular activities.
Adventurers Club is a fun, interactive, outdoor club run by Mrs Shaw after school on a Thursday. It offers a fantastic opportunity for children to learn about nature and have fun and get messy while they're doing so! So far this term the club have made muddy tree faces, pizzas and woodland creatures using natural objects, built shelters for woodland creatures and people, looked for mini beasts and even built a fire to toast marshmallows on - yum!
Through these engaging and exciting activities the children have gained a greater understanding of caring for animals and the natural environment around us. Using natural objects for art for example was a great opportunity to examine leaves and sticks etc more closely and learn which type of plants they had come from. The children also felt it was better to use these materials as they are biodegradable.
