  • Farm excursion

July 7 and 8th 2024

The Adra montessori school primary group children went on a two day farm trip to Kolar. As part of the academics they learnt first-hand about natural forestry, observed and studied how Sandal Wood tree saplings & trees grow naturally. They learnt about progression of flowering and fruiting of Cherry Guava, Pomegranate, Mango, Gooseberry, Jamun, and Ramphal trees. During the morning walk they came across around 18 bird species. Some of which could be viewed at a very close range including the Grey bellied Cuckoos, Black Drongo, Mynas, and Peacocks. The children were fortunate to see two bird nests in close range as well. The common Pochard bird nests will not be in the trees, but in bushes at the ground level close to water bodies. After the walk since there were many varieties for breakfast, they wanted to try out everything. The Adra school children also planted saplings which grows naturally with minimal care. In August they will be coming to observe the growth. The nature was so stimulating that their imagination were high playing various games where they used the names of the rivers they knew, directions of the river from where it flowed, and mountains they were aware. They have started to learn about the concept of distance. There was so much greenery that children did not use the sports equipment, however used the materials around them in nature to play. Exploring around they were so fascinated discovering various shapes of twigs and sticks. There was singing and dancing, and were self-entertaining that no external gadgets were required. We spotted Turtles, Mongoose, various kinds of butterflies as well during the walks.
