What Do You Know About Asia?

Quality Area 3.2: The environment is inclusive, promotes competence, independent exploration and learning through play.  (NQF)

Today MS Bernie presented the group time discussion about Asia. She had shared her experiences and knowledge about her holiday and travel adventures through Cambodia, Laos, and  Thailand. The children were fascinated by Ms Bernie’s journey. Ms Bernie explained that Asia is the continent and that there are many countries within this continent. Jett was extremely interested in Ms Bernie’s presentation because his Aunty has also holidayed in Cambodia. Ms Bernie had shown the children pictures of the traditional people who live in these areas and the lifestyles they live such as fishing, cooking and working. Ms Bernie had also taught the children to say hello in Cambodian, which is “Sour Sdey”. This group time presentation was enriched with information and displays that inspired the children to explore this presentation further in depth. Megan and Verity are playing in the travel agent and are travel consultants for Maxwell and Jett who intend to travel to Cambodia.  Sophie is painting a picture of the images that she had seen on display of the elephant and the man fishing in the river. During the cooking experience, Maxime alongside his friends Jett, Mason and Verity are using various methods of preparation for the Thai stir-fry dish. Verity is peeling the vegies which I then passed on to Jett so that he can dice the vegies. Jett then passes it onto Maxime who is  mixing the vegetables with the noodles in a bowl.
