Kel got a phone call from Pooh bear himself. Kel answered the phone and he asked her "How can I get to the top of the tree to get some honey?". Kel started thinking of some ways she could float Pooh Bear up to the top of the tree. Maybe with a ballon, a piece of material or to even make a ladder?

At LJPS we use a play based learning approach to engage children in experiences that support the development of problem solving and critical thinking. Play can expand children’s thinking and enhance their desire to know and to learn. In these ways play can promote positive dispositions towards learning. Children’s immersion in their play illustrates how play enables them to simply enjoy being.
Therefore in the above experience “helping Pooh Bear get to the honey”, we encourage the children to think of solutions for this, what they would use to create their designs, solving their own problems along the way. Overall they are, thinking critically, problem solving, testing their own theories and ultimately in charge of their own learning , with us supporting them to make it happen or provoking their thinking with further questions.
