Welcome back to another sunny day at Aqua! The children started the morning of as normal with some yoga. They not only learn the poses, but while completing them they learn to say the animal in Spanish with their teacher Alejandra. They children are doing an amazing job remembering the word in different language.
Inside today there was lots happening when free play was on. Edward, Adeline, Lily and Charlotte sat with donna and completed 16 piece puzzles.
Isla enjoyed some time drawing big circles on her paper.
Evan, Charlie and Georgia spent some time exploring the kitchen area and pretending they where chef’s. Evan made Donna tea and coffee. Mmmmmm. Thanks Evan.
Adeline, Lily and Charlotte love making houses with the pillows and staying inside with their baby dolls.
At group time, Isla brought a Penguin for the letter of the week. She also shared with us a picture of her at the zoo. Charlotte brough a pony to share. Afterwards we spoke about the importance of keeping clean always and eating healthy food to stay strong.
Then we did some learning centre time. Alejandra’s group where sorting colours with the balls, they also were using the thong which helps develop muscles that are used when we start writing.
Liza’s group are doing a project on transport, they used fine motor skills to colour the shape of a car. As there is many children who love the vehicles, this project has all children wanting to join in.
Donna’s group explored rice, how the cup is full, half full and then empty. We have some really clever scientists in Aqua, Emily could show me how the cup is full and then empty as she poured it out. Well done clever Emily!!
Lily and Charlotte also enjoyed being the teacher and using Donna’s books for their own group time.
Rosanna painting the children’s favourite characters onto their hands.
Nelson’s group did some amazing large motor development. They had to use their muscles in their legs to jump high and complete the obstacle course.
Edward and Leonardo, enjoyed sometime together, exploring the farm animals. While the girls had fun together in the cubby house.
It was a fun filled day at Aqua as always.
