This week as part of our people who help us curriculum topic the children enjoyed extending their interest of building and role play out to the local community. The children thoroughly enjoyed taking along their construction tools, dressing up and a wide range of construction items, including real wood pieces and tree stumps. Using their construction materials the children loved exploring various structures developing physical skills.
We also took this opportunity to further explore the weather phenomena, on this very windy day. The Ducklings loved watching the materials float in the wind while the Penguins and pelicans enjoyed making their own kites with wooden logs.
