This will be the final reflection for this year, and what a great year it has been.
This week has seen us totally immersed in Christmas preparations, glue and glitter everywhere, decorations to be made to make our room look festive and beautiful, songs to be learnt, and surprises to be finished and hidden away
The children were also able to do their favourite Kindergarten activities, sometimes you need a break from Christmas!
We had a visit from “Cleo” Mary’s Guinea Pig, which was very exciting. We received a letter from Dougie and his family who have gone to live in England, we were able to read about his new home and his new School. The children enjoyed their last music and dance sessions with Kylie and Karen, who have instilled an appreciation of music and movement in the children, what great experiences they have had.
Drawing has continued to be a favourite activity – the children create wonderful, imaginative, creative, detailed drawings and paintings, which show an awareness of colour, design, and fine muscle control. They are able to draw what they want, able to follow through their ideas.
In building, the children have demonstrated an awareness of space, balance, size and distance, creating detailed and involved structures.
Physically, the children have developed confidence in themselves and their own abilities.
We will measure ourselves again next week, so the children can compare how much they have grown over the year, we have measured them on our Height chart at the end of each term during the year.
The children have developed confidence and independence – an awareness of others and being part of a group – all working towards settling into School and growing up in the World.
As we look back on a great year, thank you to all our families for your help and support, thank you to Sylvia who has helped us during the year and a special thanks to my co-educators Ann and Lisa, who are so important and wonderful.
Have a happy and safe holiday. It’s goodbye from me – I wish you all well – I will miss you all.
Group A Educators – Margot, Ann and Lisa.
