Last week Prep went on an excursion to the Early Start Discovery Space at the University of Wollongong. The children engaged in lots of role play as they dressed up as builders and finished building a house, played pirates in the ship, went shopping in the supermarket and put on a performance in the lights and stage area.
They laughed at the noises that were made as they climbed through the digestive system and used the torches to explore the cave, discovering bats and an owl hanging from the roof. The children enjoyed the technology room as they made stop-motion movies with animals and used the iPads to animate their drawings.
We enjoyed lunch outside where the children were able to explore a creek, water pumps and climb along logs, working together to pump the water and encourage each other to successfully navigate the logs. We all had a thoroughly enjoyable and stimulating experience.
