Celebrating Outdoor Play Day

We were outside for the middle block on Friday to take part in Outdoor Play Day. What a fantastic time. The children were so engaged!
I supplied magnifying glasses and clipboards in case anyone might find them useful. We set up the premise that it was a time to be totally self-directed; an opportunity to adventure, explore, play. The only rule was to stay in sight of a grown up. Thanks heaps to the mums who joined us as it meant we could spread further through the school grounds.
Play-based learning is often praised for enabling children to develop and use their Key Competencies. I felt so proud of our Room 3 and 4 children as I could see and hear them doing exactly that. Click here to read more about the Key Competencies.
