Week beginning 8th September 2014
We began our week with our father’s day celebration on Monday. I’d like to thank our Dad’s and special people for coming to our Father’s day celebration. The children from the koala group really enjoyed having you there, and spending time with you at kinder. We hope you liked your thumb print keying!
On Thursday we began the session outside and the children spent time attempting some new and more challenging puzzles, with a little guidance. It’s great to see the children’s cognitive skills have really developed throughout the year; they are taking the time to think about where the pieces might go and enjoying the challenge. Children were also spending time outside making their own cubby houses using some large pieces of materials and the A-frames. They were having tea parties and baking cakes inside their cubbies! Lots of fun!
On Thursday we decided to make our own play dough using sand to add a different texture. The children spent time mixing and kneading the ingredients and were really enjoying the sensory experience. The play dough turned out really well and the children requested some shells to add to the sand play dough. There were a couple of very creative children making shell castles. Well done!
The roller painting has continued to be popular this week with children exploring with different sorts of utensils for easel painting. We had roller brushes, sponges, blocks and corks. Next week we will be looking at painting using edicol paints and pipettes.
Next Thursday we will be having our break-up party. The children are able to dress-up in their footy colours or jumpers/scarves if they have them. We will be playing lots of ball games outside. Should be lots of fun!
Please remember your children’s hats for outside play.
Look forward to a great last week of term!
