Kindergarten students at St Thomas Aquinas in Bowral have been busy solving the case of "Why did Humpty Dumpty fall?"
The play-based STEM learning unit encouraged the children to play detective and investigate why Humpty Dumpty fell and how they could have saved him.
Education officer Joanne Treffone said the project had explored key elements such as learning through relationships and play-based learning in a culture of inquiry.
The teachers worked hard to make the experience engaging and fun for the children.
A crime scene was set up with police tape and other props while an egg played the role of the ill-fated Humpty Dumpty.
Mrs Treffone said the program allowed the kindergarten children to show their capabilities through play.
"As children learn through play and inquiry they develop many of the skills and competencies they will need in order to thrive in the future including the ability to engage in innovative and complex problem-solving, and critical and creative thinking, to work collaboratively with others, and to take what is learned and apply it in new situations in a constantly changing world," she said.
"We've found that children learn best when they are actively engaged in purposeful learning experiences.
"The oral language of students has improved considerably through this strength-based model and the children have been highly engaged and motivated, talking with their parents about what they are learning at school."
