Sunday afternoons were always exciting , after lunch it was time for an expedition, it might be to the woods , the beach or the fields . Every trip was full of discoveries and ‘finds’. These finds were ready for Monday morning when they would be carried with great care into school to be displayed on the Nature Table.
This table became a focus for exploring and discovering , it told stories, of the seasons , life cycles how things worked and changed constantly.
The Nature Table seems to have lost its position in schools and it feels as if children and adults have lost some of the wonder of the things that are around them every day . I have decided to regain that explorer in me and post a Nature table each week with discoveries and finds.
