We decided to use our THRASS knowledge in a fun practical way by going to the Botanical Gardens and doing a treasure hunt. Although it was rather hot, it was a most successful outing, thanks to the mums who offered to help as facilitators.
Each mum was assigned a group. They set off, armed with a pencil and a packet of goodies to complete 10 activities based on the THRASS chart.
|Studying the map, and counting the|
number of gardens there are.
They started by studying the map... they had to use bread to feed the ducks, use their nose to match the herbs they had in their packets with those in the herb garden,
|Caleb uses his nose to find the herbs|
find the names of three trees.
In Fern Dell, mums had to take a photo of their group with a fern. Thanks to Calebs mum who supplied this photo.
One of the most popular activities was the Orchid house, where they had to throw a coin into the water and make a wish as well as measure how many steps from the one side to the other.
|Rhea making a wish!|
|Nikhil and Senthen being boys! Who can resist|
such a big tree a tree to climb in!
|A heron also wanted in on the action!|
|Mrs Sweet with the treats!|
Thereafter, both children and parents could relax under the trees and enjoy their picnic.

Thanks mums for helping us make this such a worthwhile experience. If any of you have more photos, I would love to include them, so please send them onto me.
