August Plans

Happy August!

I hope that you’re enjoying the slower paced days of summer, and are looking forward to a new school year (if you have already begun, do leave me a comment and let me now how you’re getting on!)

August is a smashing month for nature study; the Perseids Meteor Shower begins to peak from the 9th onwards, this year the new moon falls on the 1st, so the showers should quite visible, cloud cover allowing. We have harvest in full swing (you might like to add Celebrating the Seasons with Children : : Harvest Festival to your summer plans). Berries and fruits are bursting forth, and if you watch patiently, you may be rewarded by seeing a wee creature foraging for its dinner!

For those of you who are using Exploring Nature With Children, the weeks fall as follows:

1 ~ 4th Break Week

5 ~ 11th Week 1: Night Time Sky

12 ~ 18th Week 2 Senses Walk

19 ~ 25th Week 3 Summer Pond Study

26 ~ 1st Week 4 Discussion Week

If you’re beginning Exploring Nature With Children for the first time this September, we shall be starting out with Week 1 : : Seed Week on Monday 2nd September.

If you’re over on Instagram, do pop over and say hello! Our community uses the #exploringnaturewithchildren hashtag, if you would like to join in. I love to see your ENWC adventures, so please feel free to tag me, and I may share your photograph on my own Instagram page.

As always, please work the weeks to suit your own circumstances best; these are just my own suggestions!

In other news, the summer sale begins on Saturday 3rd August! There shall be a 20% discount on all the Raising Little Shoots products.
