Explorers, Group 5 – The Magic Bojabi Tree

Today group 5 read the beautiful story of The Magic Bojabi Tree by Piet Grobler and Dianne Hifmeyr. Inspired by the book the children set about creating their own python that was coiled aroundĀ a tree.

The children shared their ideas and worked collaboratively to gather lots of different colours from the school grounds to represent the colours of the snake.

When we paused and reflected on our learning thinking about how learning with others helps our own thinking. Rowan told us “it was harder learning” when you talk with others. Skye told us “When I was talking I said to someone can you help.”

New Year in Nursery

Nursery have got off to a flying start. 2018 has begun with lots of challenges and exploration.

This week the children have discovered lots of little people stuck in blocks of ice. Using a range of tools and ingredients they have been trying to find out which releases the people the quickest!

We have been exploring colours and what happens when we mix different colours. Using poster paint, powder paint and water colours the children have been discovering new shades and tonesĀ of colours.

It has also been a great to start to our PE curriculum. The children have been combining travels and balances along the floor an on equipment.
