Happy Monday everyone and welcome to another day with us here in the Magenta group.
What a great start to our day we are having, with a lovely relaxing morning of self select activities and welcoming our friends as they arrived and a delicious morning tea of jam scones and fries fruit.
The children gathered as the morning went on with their friends talking about their weekends and how much fun they had playing at home with their toys and their families.
For group time today we have begun to celebrate book week. We talked about how wonderful book are and the great stories and adventures they can take us on as we read the pages and look at the pictures. Thank you to Isla and Henry who brought in some lovely books for us to read. Don’t forget book week is every day this week so please feel free to bring in your favourite book from home so we can share them with our friends and teachers during group time and throughout the day.
Henry “ My book is the best”
Nishka “ I read with my mummy all the time”
Isla “ The mermaid is my favourite story”
Amelia “My story is about princesses and unicorns”
During group time today we started making our own books and we have been celebrating how wonderful it is to make our own stories and pictures.
We also had a great play the Crimson yard extending our gross motor skills through climbing, jumping, running and skipping. We also had a game of soccer for our foot and eye coordination and we are getting really good at kicking the ball in the direction we want it to travel.
Some of our other activities today were drawing, painting, large block construction, garden house with dolls and home corner set up, painting, easel large drawing, cars and construction connecting.
Hope you all have a lovely evening and see you all tomorrow.
