There has been a lot of interest in the Star room between Liam, Logan and Oliver as to where "oil" comes from, after a lot of conversations, discussion then began about how and where oil is extracted from the earth and the consequences oil spills may have on our marine animals. The boys were extremely interested when their educator suggested that by using the internet and printing off some pictures they could investigate this topic further. 

Theorist, Lev Vygotsky believed that each child is born with the skills necessary for learning.  He believed that learning and development cannot occur outside of the social and cultural context and that social learning played a critical role in cognitive development.  He stressed social interactions, role modelling, tutoring and instructing as important strategies for cognitive development.
