We are so fortunate at the Nest to have a gorgeous school environment to explore!
It may not always be obvious, but children are constantly engaging in literacy and numeracy through play!
Our Junior Kindy and Kindy friends enjoyed some Nature Play time yesterday, while our Pre Kindy went on their Library Visit! Our amazing facilities allow for real world learning about community and the environment. We love getting out and about in the school, investigating, wondering and exploring the environment.
It was a beautiful morning to do some water colour painting in the sunshine! We invented some new colours - plinkle, blueen, yellowy while we worked out how to mix and match the 3 primary colours to make new ones! It was so tricky coordinating our movements to make the droppers both take in the water and shoot it out again.
A few weeks ago, we explored how objects can create art through motion and force. We put paper on the slide and rolled cars through paint and then down the slide. Noticing how the children responded to the experience, we have been adding different elements of motion to our art exploration.
We have had a visitor at the Nest this morning! A green tree frog has decided to join us. Miss Jenny has made him a safe and comfy home to keep him out of harms way until we can release him somewhere a little safer than our playground. Come and see if you can spot him!
It is our primary aim to instill in our Nestlings, curiosity, and a sense of wonder about their world. Deeper learning begins with curiosity, questioning, hypothesizing. As we say farewell to one of the greatest minds of our time, we sow the seeds of curiosity in the next generation of thinkers, leaders and world changers.
