3 Year Old Koala Group Blog 31/10/2013
On Monday we were outdoors digging under the tree with long handled spades, digging in the sandpit with spoons and bowls and examining the garden. One of the four year old groups planted some vegetables over a week ago and our Koala group children have been watering them and making sure that they are not being eaten by different bugs such as “caterpillars”. When being on Bug patrol they did discover there were snails hiding under the flowers. We spoke about what we could do with the snail and “inside” was the general decision, with the other snails in the container, ”Snail House” More and more snails just keep emerging. If you have not seen the snails they have joined the stick insects on the nature table which is half way in the room. Remember that if your family find anything from nature we would love for you to share it with us.
How exciting was Monday afternoon when our Grandparents and/or special friends were here with us at Kindergarten. It was lovely to see the children show their family members what they like to do, who their friends are and how they can climb, swing and run. Of course the children sat for some time and eat all the delicious food. Yes our special friends did have something to eat but the children did enjoy eating............Thank you all so much for coming to Kindergarten.
Karen was away on Thursday so Margot was able to be with us. We stayed outdoors for most of the session as the children were very involved in the different areas in the yard. We saw the lady from “Woof” again with the same 5 dogs come to walk them in the park behind the Kindergarten. The children watched them come out of the van and they came over and said hello to us and then of course off they went. Today some of the children watched the dogs running in the park. “They run fast” was a comment made by one of the children. Will we see these dogs again???????
We hope you have a happy Melbourne Cup long weekend and we will see you on Thursday 7/11/2013
