The staff decided to take a small group of children for a visit to Mitre 10. it was a lovely morning for all  of us as we strolled through Mitre 10 with no one but helpful staff to assist us – lots of questions were asked by the curious 3 and ‘Mike’ was more than pleased to provide the answers – we all then enjoyed morning tea together in the sun at the station Kiosk.

What learning do I think is happening here?

Children learned about the shop, what you could buy there, what you needed to build (wood and sandpaper), they did not just experience an outing but engaged in a meaningful way.
