Our whole Infant and Junior School recently took part in a day exploring ‘Awe and Wonder’.
The children worked in their class groups exploring a variety of topics and questions such as:
Lessons encouraged pupils to engage with their sense of curiosity, inviting and exploring the feeling of awe and wonder in our everyday lives. They reflected on the sensations of awe whilst exploring some of the triggers for this feeling, focusing in particular on our emotional responses to the world around us.
They were encouraged to ask big questions and feel engaged and confident with the idea of the ‘unknown’, learning to embrace the mystery and magic of life as something to cherish and treasure. Lessons invited practices for recognising and appreciating wonder in the everyday as well as the wider world.
It truly was a fantastic day of learning and exploration.
