We started this week with a beautiful morning picnic in the avacado grove. The children all love this outing and we find it to be a positive start to our week, re-establishing boundaries and affirming relationships. After eating breakfast we like to do a bit of a nature search, with everyone becoming very excited about their discoveries. Today we found a nest of catepillars, and after reading the catepillar story it was a great opportunity to go over what we had learnt about the catepillar. It is also a good opportunity to expose the children to care for their environment, not picking the plants and taking care not to harm the small creatures we encounter.
