Life in the Woods at Kensington

Summer Camp Session 1

 

    

 

What’s in the woods? Who lives in the trees?

From spotted moths and frisky squirrels to striped snakes, we met all sorts of woodland friends as we traveled through the forest.
We investigated the different specimens of trees in the wood and the bugs and animals that live on the woodland floor.
There was much to discover about “Life in the Woods!”

 

    

 

 

 

 

Kensington School Gardens

 

Our gardens are growing!

 

     

 

 

We Have a Little Garden

by Beatrix Potter

 

We have a little garden,

A garden of our own,

And every day we water there

The seeds that we have sown.

 

We love our little garden,

And tend it with such care

You will not find a faded leaf,

Or blighted blossom there.

 

 

 

 

Spring Musical Programs

 

Children took to the stage at all our schools in May and June, rounding out their school year with a musical performance.

 

Our three year old classrooms delighted families with spring songs and poems, while our four and five year old children received standing ovations for their rendition of "The Wizard of Oz."

Look out Broadway, here comes Kensington!

 

                 

 

 

      

 

    

 

 

Horsin' Around!

 

We wrapped up our school year with dynamic hands-on project based learning explorations.  Horses were a favorite topic!

 

Through special visitors, activities, and artistic endeavors, children made exciting discoveries about these amazing animals.

 

       

 

 

 

 

Mom's Garden Party

 

   

 

       

"If mothers were flowers, I'd pick you!"

 

 

An "Egg"citing April!

 

 

The “peep peep” of newly hatched chicks could be heard in our school hallways during the month of April as we welcomed    dozens of fluffy baby chicks. 

 

Children were able to observe the life cycle of a chicken, from egg to chick, as part of our project based learning explorations in April.

 

Incubators were set up in each of our schools and the children helped count down 21 days to “Hatch Day”!  What an amazing experience it was for children, families and teachers alike to witness our chicks emerge from their eggs!
