We are excited to announce that we have been able to arrange an excursion to visit Mammoth Cave as part of our HASS, Science and Cosmic Education Curriculum. Over the next few weeks we will be launching into Montessori’s Great Stories, which are offered to the children to ignite their imagination and springboard their learning across all the disciplines of study. These Five Great Stories include; The Formation of the Universe, The Coming of Life, The Coming of Man, The History of Alphabet and The Story of Numbers, and are accompanied by Key Lessons and an extraordinary array of timelines and materials.
The Excursion is designed to offer the children a meaningful and relevant Going Out experience, to extend their learning beyond the classrooms and enhance what we have been doing at school. It will help the children learn important social skills, independence as well as giving them plenty of learning opportunities. We been lucky to secure a tour of Mammoth cave as well as a Mega fauna workshop for each child.
