The day began with looking at objects the children had brought in from home

On the first day, the children were split into two groups, both working on 'our environment, trees in the environment, patterns and natural forms'.  The day began with looking at objects the children had brought in from home or that they chose from the Culture of the Countryside basket. Further activities included responding to colourful and patterned objects from Papua New Guinea, storytelling, and going outside to forage for natural materials, which led to artwork in the afternoon.
