I consistently learn from the children and I know I will learn from our interns; Francesca, Karuna and Eva too.
What I learnt today was that children are indeed philosophers even by accident and Anousha’s question about Who are you? was so profound.
The scaffolding of Karuna for Aryan led to a beautiful piece of writing that was shared about Karuna.
Karuna herself wrote so emotively about Eva that it helped me learn a wee bit more about Eva.
Francesca reminded me about Eric and is so sensitively tuned that she picked up his inhibitions and my lack of attention to rota and order and it was precious to hear her articulate it.
I was most heartened to find that we were able to create an atmosphere where all the children felt safe to write, share and talk about their thoughts and that is wonderful!
