Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten News

Last term the Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten students investigated the transdisciplinary theme of "How We Express ourselves" with the central idea focusing on "Senses help people explore the world." The student's curiosity was engaged through a variety of immersion experiences to evoke all of their senses. Experiences such as blind taste tests, mystery scent pots, sensory walks and cooking throughout this inquiry encouraged the development of a rich sensory vocabulary to assist the children's discovery and expression of their ideas and feelings.

These photos illustrate one of the children's favourite experiences whereby they completed a sensory walk blindfolded and had to describe what sensation they were feeling under their feet. The words used were so descriptive and imaginative. So much fun was had by all.
