Play dough fun in Social Science

The Rainbird class learnt all about the build of South Africa. To test what they had learnt, they had to built a model showing the coastal plain, plateau, escarpment and mountains. Some of the playdough had such a nice essence we were tempted to eat it. Of course as one of the children found out when tasting it, that the amount of salt in playdough doesn’t make for a tasty treat

Louries and Rainbirds enjoy Kirstenbosch magic.

Indigenous fynbos, ghost frogs, orb spiders, montane forests and Xhosa huts – all investigated under the majestic presence of Nursery Buttress – a natural learning environment in which our children can be children! To top it all, there was a maze of tree trunks in the forest to explore and climb, and frogs and crabs in the streams to catch and examine.

This outing is always a favourite, and at the end of a frenetic term, is just what the doctor ordered  for pupils and teachers alike!
