Recently our school has been given a collection of stumps and branches to enhance our creative nature play area. The Year 5s have been developing their leadership skills by meeting with other classes to develop a whole-school culture for using these materials safely and successfully. These opportunities have been important for expanding imagination; developing collaboration, communication and problem-solving skills; and exploring basic engineering in fun and engaging ways.
“I love how the students are working through all of the different steps involved in setting up their rules and responsibilities. It’s wonderful that students have these opportunities to be creative in their play. Thanks, Year Fives!” - Jen Schultz, Reception Teacher
