We have been very interested in rockets today after listening to a new space book at group time! We learnt about how rockets are built in real life. Then we made rockets out of the waffle blocks and took turns going inside of it with Arturo’s help. Juliana also extended this interest with an arts and craft of making our own individual rockets, blasting off into space. We also built some rockets out of Mobilo.
We have also loved doing our self-portraits with Amanda. We did some drawings around us, saying some of the important things we have in our lives. We had some lovely singing during Bonkers time, with Max leading us on the guitar for the “Old MacDonald had a Rock and Roll Band.” We danced around as well as sang along to our favourite animal sounds!
Amanda lead us in meditation where we made a rainstorm and talked about how the weather can impact our mood. We also did a meditation session focusing on being bumble bees. It was lovely to pretend to be a bee lying on a flower, enjoying the sun.
