Indoors on Monday there was lots of communication and co-operation in home corner. Some amazing meals were cooked and the babies were well cared for. In the block area buildings were built next to the train tracks, there was even a zoo with lots of animals in it. Some of the craft experiences included painting with small brushes on brown paper, stay tuned for the reveal next Term. Some of the children have been practicing their cutting skills while other children were manipulating “Sludge” which is made from a combination of water and cornflour. Before going home instead of reading a story we played a dancing game which encouraged listening skills. When the music stopped the children had to move to the nominated coloured circle.
Tuesday was such a lovely day so we spent most of the session outdoors. The use of trucks for some of the children along the wooden seat seems to be a favourite experience to participate in. They work together by communicating about which way they are going and which truck to use. In the sandpit many cakes were made and decorated. Wow they were delicious!!!!!!!!!Of course running and climbing and jumping off the rocks continues to be fun. And as for the swings well many are building their skills when pushing themselves. Their friends also like to push them. So many friendships are developing. “How the Kangaroos got their tales” was read again today. Some children are able to recall the story................................
Friday was our last day of Term 2 so we celebrated by wearing our PJ’s. The weather was so lovely we stayed outdoors where some of the children, did some weeding in the vegetable garden, while others spent time on the swing and others played games that involved lots of climbing. Once the packing away had finished, inside we went for popcorn. Annette used her popcorn machine to heat up the popping corn until it POPPED. It smelt yummy and we could hear it pop. It made us laugh. Eating it was so so YUMMY. The whole bag of popping corn disappeared along with the other two bags that families had brought in. Thank you so much for that. We all said goodbye to Chantelle. Best wishes to her and her family. Please stay in touch.
Wishing you all a very safe and happy holiday, take care
