Beautiful Sunflowers
Beautiful Sunflowers - Kimbolton Early Learning

Last year in October the centre planted Sunflowers in their garden and this has become a new tradition to Kimbolton, it has attracted many bees, birds and butterflies.  We have been harvesting the sunflower seeds for collection this led to a pincer grip activity using tweezers and practicing our hand and eye coordination.

Football fun
Football fun - Bulls Kindergarten

A highlight of this term at Bulls Kindergarten has been our participation in Fun Football with Paddy each Tuesday.  Through this programme, our children are further developing their confidence, physical, numeracy and social skills, and it is a great way for us to make links with the wider world.

We have been creating Zucchini  and Capsicum Relish from the yellow and green zucchini growing in our garden. This is the 2nd double batch completed this term. We have also crated beetroot relish. We have been learning how to care for our zucchini, as well as how and when to harvest.

Monarch Butterflies
Monarch Butterflies - Parkland Kindergarten

Monarch butterflies are very popular at Parkland kindergarten. We have swan plants growing for butterflies to visit and lay their eggs. Children love watching and talking about various stages of Monarch’s life cycle - laying eggs, caterpillars growing big and turning into chrysalis.

Turtles - Feilding Kindergarten

At Feilding Kindergarten maankitanga or caring is one of the characteristics we value in our teaching and learning. Our resident turtles Russel and Emma help us learn how to care for the wonderful small creatures of our world. Russell and Emma have been at kindergarten for many years now and they have grown quite big.

Worm Farm
Worm Farm - Pahiatua Early Learning

Pahiatua Early Learning kaiako and tamariki gladly welcomed Maddy to our centre to help us with setting up our worm farm. We are currently working through steps to be more sustainable and diverting some of our food waste to our worm farm is one way of supporting this. Maddy showed a small group of children the steps needed – we wet newspaper to make a layer of moist paper.

Children at Parkland kindergarten were very excited to find potatoes in our garden. We enjoyed  harvesting, peeling, cooking and tasting potatoes. We had conversations about different ethnic food around the world and we made a special Indian dish called “Bombay Potatoes”.
