When children are not told how to use loose parts buidling materials they will use their imaginations and test their ideas to build and create.
We have lots of little inventors at Minnies.

What a lovely start to the week. We harvested some courgette and raspberries from our preschool -Kahikatea garden, and some strawberries from the Nursery-Whekī garden. The fruit is already in the bowls ready for ngā tamariki to enjoy, and the courgette is going to be cooked with lunch today, which is maccaroni cheese. Our tamariki are wonderful kaitiaki and take care of our garden so beautifully.

Today’s totara time was the last one for the year so finished off with a couple of science experiments - clouds in a jar - observing the drops of dye (rain) make their way through the shave foam (clouds) and mini fizzing volcanoes. The children were keen to mix the shave foam and baking soda/vinegar mixture together to see what happen, what happened was a squishy and fluffy mess! Plus another sticker was added to the advent calendar πŸ—“οΈ

Yesterday for totara time we enjoyed exploring shapes on the white boards - we used a ruler to create a square, rectangle, trapezium and a hexagon. We also practiced writing numbers and counting.
