GROUP A REFLECTIONS WEEK 14TH – 17TH OCTOBER 2014.
The last term is well underway now, with the children really working well together – when we look around the room or the playground, we see groups of children all working together to share their ideas and games, maybe 2 children, maybe 5 - 6 children, - demonstrating their developed ability to co-operate, and work with each other to achieve their aims. But we also recognize that some children enjoy and need their own space, and sometimes like to work by themselves – this is important too – it’s very important that children are able to enjoy their own company, and rely on their own resources.
We have had some wonderful creations made at the craft table – the children’s work is very imaginative and creative, and exciting to see. They are also developing their fine motor skills, using scissors and manipulating the paper and materials to carry out their ideas.
The children are really enjoying and becoming very clever at playing games that require concentration and memory, this week’s favourite has been “What’s Missing”. We will be having lots of activities to develop these skills over the next weeks to prepare the children for the week they will be doing at School.
Our Silkworms are growing rapidly and are of great interest and a source of many observations and discussions – the children check and feed them daily.
We have been discussing and learning about Recycling and respect for our Environment and our World at our group discussion, and how important this is. We will continue to expand on this over the next weeks. Perhaps you could talk about this at home as well.
We still have some days left on our Roster - your children love you to come!
