Baking in the four year old room

One of the most wonderful things the children can learn from baking is how to experiment, just by taking our creative cooking licence and letting go.

There is nothing quite like throwing all sorts of ingredients together and seeing what happens. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't - it's all about learning through discovery. This way we create our own way of doing things, even if it's not exactly how it should be (Exploration).

By far the best thing about baking is how it brings people together, to make and to eat. Eating together is an opportunity to discuss what we are doing in our lives, to share what we're interested in and have a good old laugh ( Belonging).

obstacle course

It turned out to be a great obstacle course when the four year olds were chose to help in settling up the playground. They have used steppers, cones, hoops, boxes, balls etc., to build their own obstacle course and trailed it out. It was an amazing moment for them to listen to each other and coming up with solutions.

Olympic Games project in the four year old room

This morning, Bella excitedly shared about the Olympic ceremony she just watched on T.V. Arabella came along with her mum. Arabella’s mum told us that Arabella enjoyed watching Gymnastics. It is evident that some of the children are really interested in the Olympic Games that are happening.

We would like to extend the children’s interest

·        By reading them stories from the newspapers.

·       Making the Olympic flag.

·       Celebrating the NZ victory.

·       Making the medals and having Sports event.
