Kia ora koutou,

Our first Papatūānuku play afternoon was a success!

We had busy children exploring and creating with a range of loose parts. It was fantastic to see a range of children interacting and learning together.

The children..

  • made their own games on the field with Troy
  • used their imagination and construction skills in the gravel pit with Carolyn
  • worked as a team to make the Manawatu River in the sandpit with Brenda
  • built buildings taller than themselves with Sandi and Shannon
  • were motivated by beautiful flower arrangements with Lucy
  • cut, glued, and got crafty with Nicole
  • had wheelie fun with Kelly and Demelza
