We are back and busy in morning session 2013

The children, teachers and whanau are back refreshed and ready to get busy, there has been a busy buzz as children reconnect with friends, explore the environment which the teachers have changed over the first couple of weeks and challenge themselves to some new learning.
The art area has been a very busy space as children have been keen to engage in screen printing and mixed media collage.  The new indoor design has ignited a new interest as materials, resources and tools for children are more accessible, and children "as teachers" has been evident from day one as "our screenprinting experts" have been modelling the process to many new children.
The results have been stunning.

The resources have been used in diverse ways and screenprinting has created their awareness of the materials available, which has lead to further thinking and creating.

This is only week 1 with all the children back I can't wait to see where this depth of creating and thinking takes us.
