We would like to welcome everyone back after the holidays. We hope that you all kept warm and from listening to the children you were all very busy and participated in many experiences during the holidays. What a fun time you all had!!!!!
On Tuesday we started outdoors as the sun was trying to shine and the children were eager to continue in their chosen experience. Some of the children were busy running around the yard, pretending to be dinosaurs while other children were in the sandpit........When indoors we sat on the mat and heard about some of the children’s adventures on holidays. We would like to thank families for doing their holiday page. Your child is so proud of themselves when talking in front of the group. We played a new cd called “African Playground” Some of the children danced and played instruments while listening to the music..............Before going home we read a story called “Where the rubbish goes” We discussed the right thing to do by putting rubbish in the bins and was interesting to find out that some of the children are building an awareness about recycling and how to care for our environment.
On Friday we also started outdoors........being in the sandpit and of course being on the swing enabled the children to build their skills and interests. Some of the girls worked together in the dirt area to create mud bricks......what great communication and cooperation occurred. Indoors more children spoke about their holiday...........thanks for sharing what you got up to. In home corner there is a plane where many of the children seem to know what flying is all about...........During this session the children worked together and were happy to help their friends when required.......Before going home we examined “Where the rubbish goes” again and discussed what we can do to stopped having so much rubbish.........Please let us know what you do at home.......maybe we could do it at Kinder as well. We can share your ideas with our Kindergarten families to make our environment a better place.
