As we read the story Archie identidfied the sting ray shape that Maui had hooked up and his brothers chopped up to form the valleys and hills of the Te ika te Maui - North Island.
Reading together, Archie and Charlotte, act out their understanding of the legend; one with a stick, one with a rope! (Links to another story we shared called 'The Spooky Tree). They were able to transfer the props from one story to another!
It has been inspirational to observe the children of Geraldine Kindergarten return to things we have done together as a team. Drawing upon past experiences supports children to make their own theories of the world and helping to explain 'what is their world?"
(Links with our current group story for Term 2).
To support children top apply new knowledge we could ask, "Where else could you apply this...?", "What would it be like if...?"
