What did the Teachers do?

Well we survived the holiday break, as did the kindy frogs, slugs, crickets, fish and locusts who got regularly fed. New windows got put in to ensure they met the standard, and the drains got fixed. Sadly the playground rebuild wasn't able to go ahead as we still need more funds.
Meanwhile lots have been asking what we did in the holidays, so here's some of what I did from Ben's blog.

Car Jump

Last term we set up this ramp for the cars since they'd been a great interest in rolling things down the hill, plus a number of cars had been brought in. We soon added a jump and due to popularity kept it going over the days to follow, as the children worked to explore and master the skills involved. I noticed a lot of long periods of play by the children exploring the ramp as they perservered with the challenge.
