On this beautiful day, the Aqua explorers started their day off with variety of experiences. At the block corner. Boys like Isaac, Leonardo, Thomas and Henry were busy building roads for their cars. With the Legos, the boys go on to build different structures such as rockets and spaceship, such experiences provided opportunities for children to extend on their cognitive, social and fine motor skills. At the dance station, the children requested songs from the Ipad to dance to, they had so much fun dancing to songs like ‘head and shoulder, knees and toes’ as well as ‘Let it go.’ The explorers had so much fun practicing their physical skills!
After morning tea, the children were divided into three groups for literacy time. They listened to various stories, practiced their counting with props and songs as well as talking about the weather.
