Green Fingers After School Club
Our Green fingers After school club is based at the local allotment, local woodlands and our Nursery Garden.
The Green fingers club aims to deliver the science, art and practice of understanding, managing and using wisely the natural resources associated with and derived from forest /natural lands. These resources include water, wildlife, plants, habitats and recreation.
These fascinating facts are then brought into the classroom to share with their class where they can explain their findings and extend their learning with the Montessori materials.
Children go out exploring mysteries of nature, picking variety of natural resources through mystery hunt , learning different trees, leaves and habitats and growing their own fruits and vegetables!
There are opportunities to build habitats, collect beasts and create a nature reserve area as well as follow nature trails and experience camping.
Although topics are set, we have a child-led culture at BBM, where children can openly share their discoveries, express their interest and find ‘treasure’!
