The class is interested in TRAVEL.
Recently a classmate left to go travelling around Australia with his family, another friend went to Uluru and Darwin during school holidays. The class have been very interested in the photos shared from these trips.
Dramatic play set-up - Preschool Travel Agency. Through play, children had the opportunity to book holidays to some amazing places in Australia and choose the mode of transport. "Explore Australia" posters and travel brochures were displayed. Each destination was identified by name, image and location on map. Destinations included were Uluru, Sydney, Great Barrier Reef, Snowy Mountains, Northern Territory, Karlu Karlu (Devil's Marbles), Lucky Bay W.A., Torres Strait Islands, Kakadu.
The children have been enthusiastic participants and play has been rich and engaging. We have observed meaningful interactions, imaginative and creative play, confident communication, curiosity/ questions, sharing of experiences and knowledge and commitment to learn more about our country.
As a group, we found these destinations on our AITSIS map and discussed. Other experiences offered last week have built on their interest such as music (Mitch Tambo Great Southern Land) and art.
