Ways to Nurture a Joy of Learning: Children's sessions - Every Friday
Robert Owen Windows of Learning project - Round 2
FREE Creative ‘Castaway’ Workshops are available for children whose guardians are taking part in the FREE Ways to Nurture a Joy of Learning adult workshops at the same time, details here.
Led by South Lanarkshire Leisure and Culture Trust, the workshops relate to one of Robert Owen’s favourite books – Daniel Defoe’s ‘Robinson Crusoe’. Children will find themselves cast away down the Clyde to a remote island. Using drama, nature craft, percussion and wild play, they will discover hidden talents to survive and return home safely, whilst their guardians attend the adult workshops.
Inspired by Robert Owen's favourite story 'Robinson Crusoe' by Daniel Defoe, we have assembled an incredible range of creative sessions for Lanark's children to enjoy. In the drama sessions children are engaged in creating their own castaway story where they have to work out how they have landed on a desert island and think about what they will do to survive.
In the music and percussion session they focus on communicating with sound and rhythm. Perhaps their new techniques will send a message to the outside world that they are stranded and want to return.
Meanwhile in the nature craft session the children make a 'diarama' - a 3D scene of how they imagine life on their island.
Finally, the children and adults come together for a final session outdoors in the woods, where the children explore tree climbing, mud kitchens, den building and cooking round the fire just like a real castaway experience.
The workshops take place on Fridays 21 and 28 April and 5 and 12 May. Book here.
