GROUP A REFLECTIONS – WEEK 2ND – 5TH DECEMBER 2014.
Christmas has arrived at Kindergarten –and the children are enjoying making decorations to make our room look beautiful. We have been making our Christmas surprises – so please remember to look away from some of the activities. Glitter and sparkles are spreading around our room – these travel almost as far as sand – sorry Mums!
We are also learning our Christmas songs – it’s impossible to keep these a secret. The children are looking forward to our Christmas Party Day ( on Thursday 18th December at 1.00 p.m.)– it certainly is an exciting time There will be a List put up for you about food for our Christmas Party – please put your names against what you will bring for us to share.
We have been having activities that provide some quiet areas to play and relax such as our picnic area for the soft dolls, and our favourite puzzles and construction games. The children are doing some wonderful drawings and paintings at the moment.
Outside the children seem to need to run – and run- and run, and they still have some energy left. They have been rolling our car tyres around the playground. They are heavy so this uses their large muscles and requires concentration and focus. They have been having tyre races rolling the tyres down our hill and seeing how far they will go, so this requires them to be aware of and look out for other children as well. These active, sometimes noisy, sometimes rough, energetic games will prepare them for the busy playground they will experience at School. We try to let the children sort out any differences themselves, as we will not be there for them next year. They are developing their own self identities, becoming confident and independent.
We are looking forward to spending these last days of the Kindergarten Year together, and having fun with each other.
When you receive your Transition Forms back again – for your approval and signature - please return these to me the next day if possible, so these can be forwarded to the Schools.
What will happen next week ?
