Hello, Crimson families. Wow, is it summer already? So hot! Of course, the children had a great time in the yard. Just a quick reminder to families: we like to remind you to bring a hat for your child. And please write your child’s name on it. Thank you.

During group time, we gathered on the mats and welcomed Charlotte who had transitioned from the Magenta Room. After, we listened to our friend’s news. Today, Shona, Nicky, Belian and Arya presented us with the news.

 

Shona shared her book ‘A walk in the bush’. She said “This is Australian book. It has lots of rainbow lorikeet. I got it as a present. I go a lot of bush walks and see lots of trees and rocks.” Then she showed us her favourite page.

 

Arya showed us a shell. She explained “My mum found it in other side of the beach. When I went to Tasmania I collected lots of shells and rocks. I found big shells and small shells. I keep them safe in my sock box.”

 

Nicky showed us a busy bee toy and red blanket. He explained “This is a toy I was playing when I was a little baby. When you pull it, wings move. Faster you run, wings move fast. It’s from New Zealand that’s why its special. This blanket is from New Zealand too. I was using it when I was a baby but it doesn’t fit me anymore. I get bigger and bigger. I keep it in the wardrobe, high up.

 

Belian showed us a snake. He said “I’ve got a snake. My mum found it in my home. Me and my sister give a name to this snake.” We wondered… Which country has the most snakes in the world? Amol looked it up on the internet and it was Australia!!!!!

 

Thank you, Shona, Arya, Belian and Nicky to share the news! The topic for this week is ‘Countries of interest’. Ideas include traditional clothes, pictures, flags, books about the country or written in the language of the country.

After, it was time for the learning centre.

Children engaged in various activities in the room and on the deck. The Group of children enjoyed the matching cards game on the mat. The matching cards had been made by the children the other day, so they were delighted when their own cards came out. On the drawing table, some children extended their interest in the Olympics and drew the flag of their favourite country. Lily made a Japanese flag, Edward drew a Union Jack, Viraj and Arda created an Aboriginal flag.

On the deck, another group of children extended their interest in the continents and began to learn about the animals that live on each continent. Together, they looked for a card with a picture of an animal and the same picture on each continent. After, children drew a picture of their favourite animal. Shona drew a horse, Arya chose a giraffe and Oscar drew a hedgehog.

In the afternoon, all the children had great fun in the yard.

 

It was such a fun day!! See you tomorrow.
