On Monday 30th July Deanne from CERES came into blue group to do an audit of our outdoor kindergarten
After a discussion about recycling, reusing and pollution, Deanne introduced the children to native plants and mini
The group was divided into two. Half audited the trees, bushes and grasses that we have at kinder, counting each
one as they went.
The second group searched for mini beasts, looking under logs, rocks, on trees, in the garden and on plants. We
managed to find centipedes, worms, spiders, slaters, millipedes, sugar flies and moths.
The incursion involved all the children and extended their learning from planting and looking after the garden.
This incursion helped connect children to the wonders of the natural world through sensory and play-based
learning as well as acquiring the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values necessary to shape a sustainable future.
