A trip to Naivasha in CE1/CE2

For three days, our CE1/CE2 pupils enjoyed a trip to Lake Naivasha. Their teacher, Mr. Gastaud, ensured that they had a program of activities in line with the themes covered in class, linking theoretical and practical learning.

Day 1: Our students took a walk in Elsamere Park, where they made observations of living organisms and their interactions with the environment, and of food chains within the park, discovering at the same time the endangered species that live there. They also attended a lecture by Anthony Karinge on the threats facing Lake Naivasha and the environmental issues involved.

Day 2: The class traveled by boat to Crescent Island, where they hiked to observe the island’s flora and fauna. In the afternoon, workshops included cooking, writing and the production of artistic works using natural objects (leaves, branches, flowers): the LANDART. In the evening, everyone was able to show off their favorite moves at a dance party.

Day 3: Our students had to rack their brains on a treasure hunt, solving riddles and moving from clue to clue. They then planted trees to help preserve Kenya’s natural ecosystems. Finally, our students visited a museum dedicated to the lives of Joy and George Adamson, naturalists and pioneers of environmental preservation around Lake Naivasha.

This outing delighted our students, and was also an opportunity to honor the school’s E3D label, which aims to promote education for sustainable development by establishing continuity between teaching, actions and educational projects, while opening up to the outside world, in particular to the local area and its stakeholders.

We let you discover their journey through a few pictures.
