My Week of Vitamin N
A sit spot is a favourite place in nature you visit regularly to quietly sit, listen and look at plants, birds, trees and animals.
Establishing a sit spot routine and spending a small amount of time outdoors on a regular basis, will introduce students to the idea that there are many different ways to connect with their natural environment. It will allow for conversations about noticing, slowing down, being calm and ‘doing a lot whilst seemingly doing nothing.’
