Today at Bush Kinder we found a dry channel. We walked and ran through the channel – going up the sides and down again. It wasn’t easy because the sides were loose with dirt. We slid on our bottoms. We found sink holes in the bottom and rabbit holes in the sides. Cheyenne was checking all the holes and reporting to the teachers if they were ‘safe’ or not. Cooper and Anders were running fast right through the channel. We struggled to get up the sides. We used walking sticks to help us. Kyle’s root was shaped like a foot. He said ‘ This is my foot. It helps me climb.’ This is good physical development for Manangatang children who mostly walk on level surfaces.
The children are learning a good lesson about the effects of adults ‘dumping’ rubbish in our bush. We found a huge pile of rubbish today. We collected the tape recorder and we are going to see if we can take it apart at Pre School.
Hailee’s Grandma came out to Bush Kinder with us today. Karen had a great book to help us identify all the bones we found today. We found a sheeps skull, kangaroo toes and a cows leg. Though Lachlan is sure the sheep’s skull is a Terradon. Lachlan wants to be an archiologist and Anders wants to be a zoologist. Karen told us a story about how the crow became black. Thank you Karen.
Jayda’s school bag full of ‘treasures’ was priceless. Bones, glass, a skull, dried flowers, sticks and of course her lunch!
