Wow.... What a cold day we had as we started the session indoors???????? Some of us did go outdoors for running and climbing and we eventually all were out participating in experiences including weeding the vegetable garden (of course which we love), being on the swing and kicking balls. Some of the children were involved in examining the sky and the formation of the clouds and how grey they were because as I was told “there is rain inside them waiting to come out” These children could possibly be our future storm chasers. A story called” Horse” was read before going home and there was a question posed, “Why is a baby horse called a foal? Do you know WHY?
Thursday we stayed outdoors for most of the session but some of the children did come inside at times to check on the baby chicks and then they would let the rest of us know what the chicks were up to. There was some concern about the two eggs remaining and asking why they have not hatched and when this will happen. We will have to wait to see as they are not ready to come out of the egg yet. But of course the main question was “When can we hold one?” This will be happening next week which was greeted with some clapping and smiling faces. Photos of course will be taken of the children who will want to hold one. In the sandpit the saucepans and frypans initially were used for cooking but then were turned upside down and used as drums. How clever was this idea!! What great musicians the children were. Chompy has been up to many fun adventures. He certainly has been a lovely addition to the Koala Group. Thank you to Misha, Conor, Harry and Zahra for being the Environmental helpers for the week. You all were very responsible.
Again I would like to confirm that the Father’s Day celebrations on Monday 2/9/2013 is for AFTERNOON TEA from 2.15pm to 3.15pm. Sorry for any inconvenience.
Enjoy the weekend everyone
