Celebrate Childhood with us...naturally

NCD 21-5-17.jpg

To celebrate National Children's Day, on Sunday, 21st May, the Holywood Steiner
Kindergarten invites you to join us for a day filled with natural play, at our unique Natural Childhood event.

Indoor lifestyle is having profound consequences on our children’s health, especially with regard to what has been called the ‘modern
epidemic’ of obesity.”
(Health survey for England 2008)

” In a single generation since the 1970s children’s ‘radius of activity’ - the area around their home where they are allowed to roam unsupervised- has declined by almost 90 percent.”
A study of children’s independent mobility.
London : Policy Studies institute 1990.

”No, our children don’t need more school. They need more play. If we care about our children and future generation we must reverse the
horrid trend that has been occurring over the past half century. We must give childhood back to children. Children must be allowed to
follow their inborn drives to play and explore, so that they can grow into intellectually, socially, emotionally and physically strong adults.”
— Dr Peter Gary, Research Professor of Psychology Boston college.

Advent Garden

Advent Garden

In many Steiner-Waldorf schools, a very special winter festival takes place for the children. This is the advent spiral, a beautiful garden of candlelight which symbolises each individual receiving his or her light in this time of growing darkness.

As the waning days move towards their darkest at the Winter Solstice, our younger classes celebrate the coming of light with the Advent Garden. 

Martinmas Lantern Walk
4:30 pm16:30

Martinmas Lantern Walk

Dear Families of Class 4,3,2,1, Kindergarten and Playgroup,
This Friday, 11th November, is the feast day of St Martin of Tours, or Martinmas.  We celebrate this in Steiner schools across the world as a lantern festival.  St Martin is best remembered as the kind man who shared his cloak with the beggar and through this act came to see that his true life purpose was in serving those less fortunate.  This motif continues to resonate in our modern times where need must still be met with compassion and our own tiny deeds of kindness may shine out into the world.

The children have all been busy making lanterns and learning songs, while Class Two has been preparing a small presentation of the story of Martin and the beggar.  Weather permitting we will meet on the gravel at the front of the school at 4.45pm on Friday to be ready for the presentation at 5pm followed by the procession of lanterns through the school grounds. In the event of heavy rain we will have the presentation in the hall and brave the elements afterwards for our procession.    

Our journey will end with a little refreshment.  Playgroup and Kindergarteners can ‘beg’ at the Kindergarten room, and classes   1 – 4 at Class One room.  We will finish with a song and aim to be heading home by 6pm.

It is advisable to wrap up warmly and to wear wellies as we are highly likely to encounter mud.  This is a family festival so the children should remain in your care during the lantern walk.  

Although our grounds are small, they can seem vast and magical by lantern light if all participating adults make an effort to maintain our awe and reverence for the occasion.

                                              ‘In heaven the stars are shining,
                                               On earth shines my lantern for me.’

Best Wishes,
The Festivals Team

P.S. Class Two children only: please assemble at our classroom by 4.30pm, thanks.

Celebrate Natural Childhood with the Holywood Steiner School

Celebrate Natural Childhood with the Holywood Steiner School

Natural Childhood Day is how we share our belief in the child's right to play and explore the world of nature. Play is the foundation of learning in Early Years at the Holywood Steiner School and in natural play, our children have the chance to experience the real world and some real challenges.

Nurturing the child's sensory and movement organisation, imaginative faculties and social awareness, in the beautiful natural setting we provide, is an excellent basis for the healthy development of these essential foundations for life long learning.

We're inviting families who'd like to have a great afternoon of fun with their little ones to join us for woodland games, archery and crafts.

Natural Childhood Day

If we want children to flourish, to become truly empowered, then let us allow them to love the earth before we ask them to save it. Perhaps this is what Thoreau had in mind when he said, “the more slowly trees grow at first, the sounder they are at the core, and I think the same is true of human beings.
— David Sobel, Beyond Ecophobia

Experience the joy of outdoor play in a beautiful environment full of challenges and rich sensory stimulation.

Our Natural Childhood days are growing in popularity as parents strive to offer their children an alternative to screen time.

Come and join us for this free event.

Refreshments will be on sale during the afternoon.

Please make sure you dress for the outdoors. Wellies at the ready!
