At Sonas we continuously plan and deliver amazing, fun and developmental experiences for your child.
Do you know the story of The Wonky Donkey? We were surprised to learn that this donkey has a child and a story book "The Dinky Donkey". As you can imagine, we have read these two favourites over and over, enabling children to become familiar and begin to recite versions of the stories which is great!
We have role played scenes, dressed up as some of the characters, learnt the song and created our very own game of pin the tail of on the donkey which was a popular game for everyone. Hee-haw!
From generation to generation, story telling has played a huge part in everyone’s childhood.
The art of storytelling has been around for hundreds of years. Looking at tradition, we explored the storytelling of the traditional custodians of the land, the Aboriginal people-looking at how symbols represented their journeys, life events and their Dreamtime.
This inspired us to create our very own Sonas Dreamtime using the traditional symbols and painting methods of crushing ochre to form our paint and represent our journey.
Down the side you will see
A small little garden and a nearby tree.
This is our garden patch that we love and care.
Every day we water and care for the seeds we have sown.
We patiently wait and watch them grow.
Then when ready to pick,
We can take them home.
A special thank you to Erica Brandis for her kind donation of some seedlings from her garden.
