Happy Monday everyone! It is lovely to see the new Aqua children settling into the room! Upon arrival, the aqua explorers were invited to different activities. For instance, the explorers enjoyed looking at stories with Natasha at the sofa, meanwhile, other children like Isla H and Remi were busy shopping and putting babies to bed at the home corner. At the music corner, Leo and Louis expressed their creativity with music instruments.
After morning tea, the Aqua explorers were split into three groups for story time. Outside, Nelson read stories with felt board and props. Inside with Bambi, the children sang their favourite songs with Bambi such as ‘fuzzy wazzy caterpillar’, ‘if you are happy and you know it’, and ‘wheels on the bus’ etc.
During learning centre time, the Aqua explorers were invited to different experiences:
One group of children assisted Bambi in playdough making. Once the playdough was ready, the children were excited to feel the texture of the soft playdough.
Another group was invited to play a game with the pink dome. They were encouraged to stand on top of the dome and introduce themselves. It was great to see children’s turn taking during this experience.
At the outside table, children extended their creativity and fine motor skills through Lego building as well as cars in sand.
With Nelson, the explorers extended their physical skills through jumping and crawling.
The Aqua explorers had such a wonderful day today!
