Story Telling and Drama
Story Telling and Drama - Milverton Kindergarten

The children have very much been enjoying story telling and drama. We have extended on this interest by providing various props to enable them to dramatize stories for themselves. It has been great to see the way that the children have organized themselves to ensure that they have enough characters to tell each story, and that everyone has a turn to be different characters within a story.

The Three Little Pigs
The Three Little Pigs - Cloverlea Kindergarten

Over the last few days we have acted out the fairy tale of The Three Little Pigs. Our tamariki were involved in the whole production, helping to make some of the props, taking turns at acting, and then displaying  some photos taken over the week.

Walkathon for Cerebral Palsy
Walkathon for Cerebral Palsy - Milson Kindergarten

On the 20th of September we held a walkathon to raise money and an awareness of the condition Cerebral Palsy.  Sponsorship forms were sent home for families to ask their extended family, friends and neighbours to make a donation towards this worthy cause. Whanau were also offered the opportunity for their child to print their feet on tee-shirts as another means of raising money.

Today we were lucky enough to have the Little Dog Barking Theatre Company come and visit our Kindergarten for a performance.  Twinkle: A simple and beautiful story about Twinkle, a small girl who wants to fly, to fly to the moon, to fly to other worlds.  A lovely story about imagination, dreams, adventure and friendship.

New Whanau Member
New Whanau Member - Mill Street Early Learning

We have a new addition to Mill St whanau, our tamariki really wanted a pet to call their own.  First mission was to decide what animal we wanted. We had to work out the logistics of could we potentially have a horse? After a lot of discussion and measuring it was decided no, perhaps a horse wasn’t the best choice.
