Today our Pūkeko tamariki, led by our kaiako superstar Drishta, discovered some fun dinosaur and face yoga poses that could be used to move their bodies indoors on this cold day! Moving our bodies primes the brain for learning, forming the foundations for cognitive, physical, emotional and spiritual learning plus it’s fun! 🧎‍♀️‍➡️🌺🧘‍♂️

Our tiny tamariki planted vegetables such as carrots with our student teacher Yana today! They got hands-on experience learning about the plant life cycle, soil, and gardening techniques. This practical activity fosters a deeper understanding of where food comes from and encourages healthy eating habits. It also teaches responsibility as they care for their plants, fostering patience and a sense of accomplishment when they see their vegetables grow. Plus, it's a fun and engaging way to connect with nature and the environment! 👩‍🌾🥕

Our tamariki are loving riding on our new scooters outside! A great outdoor activity to keep warm even when it is grey and damp. We are developing balance, gross motor strength, spatial awareness, and turn taking skills.

Today some of our Pūkeko friends went off adventuring down to Staveley Street Dairy to buy food for afternoon tea. Archie got to pay for the food and Isabella collected the change. We had lots of fun exploring in nature in the cold morning sunshine.

Books have the power to foster empathy and understanding of other people and cultures—their hopes and dreams, their joys and sorrows, their stories and reflections. Empathy is the groundwork for understanding people who are different from oneself. Books open those doors for children to other places and experiences.
