Fun with Trees!
Trees play an important part in our lives. They give us paper, wood, fruit and medicine. They beautify our gardens and absorb carbon dioxide from our environment whilst giving off oxygen essential for our survival and good health. And so trees were the main focus on our first day of Summer School at Panyaden whose theme this year is ‘Our Environment, Our Future’.
The day started with icebreaker games, singing and dancing organised by our teachers from Panyaden and Rabbit In The Moon Foundation to welcome our summer school students. After some fun getting-to-know-you games, our students proceeded outdoors for a nature walk around the school campus to learn more about the importance of trees. During the walk, they picked up leaves and seeds dropped from fruit trees. Armed with these treasures, our children went back to the classrooms and created new and existing species of insects with the seeds. They then drew and cut out shapes of animals after which they stuck on colourful leaves. The objective was to let the children experience not only the importance of trees in our environment but to find creative ways of expressing their usefulness and beauty through art and play.
