To celebrate and extend on our learning about #RoshHashanah we were visited by Luke from Lukeโ€™s bees. What a wonderful experience for our children to learn about bees and the importance of them for our gardens.

๐Ÿ๐ŸฏA BEEutiful Excursion๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿ

In the lead up to our Rosh Hashanah celebrations we have been exploring bees and honey. As a part of this topic's program, we wanted to extend on our discovery and learning through an exciting incursion and that is exactly what we got! A big shout out to Luke's Bees, who delivered an amazing experience for our children. From learning about the life cycle of a bee, to exploring different bee hives, trying on an apiarist uniform and even tasting raw honey extracted by Luke, the children were engaged and eager to learn more! Even the educators were curious and asking questions! After the demonstration, the children broke in to small groups and took part in a variety of experiences created by Luke to further extend on their learning. This included making their own bee life cycles, constructing bees from recycled materials, building a bee habitat with lego, tasting honey and having small group conversations with Luke so he could answer any other questions they might have. As I type this post, the children are using the peg bees they created with Luke in their own play, inspired by what they learnt this morning.

๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ’Our Natural World๐Ÿ’๐ŸŒธ

We love to add a sprinkle of natural wonder in all our environments and experiences. Our Explorers have recently been investigating flowers, using them in a range of experiences from water play to using them as tools for painting. As another way to connect our babies to the fascinating natural world is displaying floral arrangements in the room.

"Including natural materials indoors invites open ended interactions, spontaneity, exploration, discovery and connections with nature. They foster an appreciation of the natural environment, develop environmental awareness and provide a platform for ongoing environmental education".

๐ŸŒณOur Mitzvah Tree Update ๐ŸŒณ

In June this year, our Kindy children went on a nature walk to collect materials to construct their very own Mitzvah Tree. They used a range of natural and recycled materials to construct the tree and were excited to have it on display in their indoor environment. We were all very eager to see how the tree would grow, with each ribbon added signifying a Mitzvah (good deed) made by one of the Kindy children. There are now over 100 ribbons on the tree and the children are proud to show everyone their individual additions, recalling the mitzvot along the way.

We are on the look out for more ribbons to keep adding to our tree so if you have any lying around at home, feel free to drop them in!

Thank you
