Play Based Discovery
On Friday we thought it would be really fun to have a studio wide, play based Discovery session!
Te Ara Tupu year 1s and 2s had a blast with each other interacting, creating and choosing activities to participate in. Learners enjoyed all spaces of the studio and self managed to engage in authentic learning experiences.
Everyone was rocking their GROW attitudes and we hope to make this a common occurrence.
Take a look at some of the photos we managed to snap!
