During the recent school holidays, staff spent time re-arranging the preschool indoor area. We had been talking about and attending professional development sessions on; Creating Inspiring Learning Environments. A very strong emphasis was placed on ‘less is more’.
When the children walked in on day 1 of this term, they absolutely loved all the changes.
Recently we held a Medieval Day. This came about from the children’s interest in knights, castles, dragons, princesses.
The children made all the props for the play in which they performed and also helped prepare the food for the medieval feast. On the special day the children came dressed up as knights and princesses.
We even had 2 special visitors from the Gumeracha Medieval Fair. It was a great day full of dancing, jousting, face painting and activities such as shield making.
