NATURE

All our little ones are passionate about nature and caring for the earth…They love discussing how to look after nature…We chatted about how to care for the earth, it’s creatures and resources…A big theme this week was discussion around negative actions that destroy the beautiful land we love and how it makes us feel and what actions we can do to keep nature beautiful…

We had fun with different art forms and activities…

Great fun with sensory sorting and nature loose parts…

And some art to remind us of all our meaningful nature discussions this week…

GALAZY EXPLORERS!

It’s been a week of space travel and exploring! For someone who appreciates the beauty of space but is not really that “into” space I even get inspired when the kids ask questions and get completely caught up in the excitement of space travel and the mysteries of the galaxy!

We have had fun with magic space dough, process art and activities…

And some art to take home to remind us of our songs and outer space adventures!

AUTUMN PLAY

Somehow Autumn always arrives just in time for us to explore another season! This year is no exception…suddenly the days have gotten chilly and there are plenty of leaves floating around to remind us Autumn has arrived! In between playtime we have had hot chocolate breaks to warm us up and chat around the table while Autumn play provocations and colours have surrounded us…

The children have been fascinated by the earthy smells and textures of Autumn. There has been a lot of discussion around the changing colours of Autumn and how nature prepares for the coming winter…

We have had fun playing around with different art forms and incorporated our Autumn finds into them…

Changing light and temperature during the Autumn mornings has not gone unnoticed by the children so we incorporated some fun light and shadow play to encourage experimentation and discussion around this…Such fun!

AUTUMN PLAY

UNDER THE SEA 02

I love under the sea week! There is so much to discuss and lovely activities to get the children fired up about taking care of the ocean…

We had ocean themed play provocations around the class with plenty of books and shells to handle and study…

Sorting and fine motor activity…

Of course plenty of water play and fishing…

Lots of fun art processes and creations!

Fun in the sea and sun!
