On Wednesday 2 December a group of us from Kindy went by bus to the Sculpture Exhibition at the Botanic Gardens in Manurewa.
The first thing the children saw when we walked into the building was an exhibition of small sculptures. They loved them.
But when they went through the glass doors to the outdoors and saw some of the sculptures that they had seen in our book at Kindy, their excitement grew.
We were amazed at how interested they were in the sculptures, talking about them, feeling them, walking around them.
But morning tea was the first item on the agenda!!
...and watching the baby ducklings was a close second!
We didn't manage to see the whole of the gardens or all the sculpture exhibits. We all saw different parts of the show and gardens but all thoroughly enjoyed it and plan to take another group next year.
The time came to go home in our bus all too soon! Although it was a rainy day no one seemed to notice!
