Hello, Crimson families. Welcome to a new week in the Crimson Room. This week is going to be a lot cooler than last week, so please bring a jumper.
During group time, gathered on the mat and welcomed Julia who came to the BBC after a short break. After, we talked about what we did over the weekend. Because it was such hot weather, some of the children said they put a little pool at their house and enjoyed playing in the water. We also discussed news time. From today, the topic has changed to ‘Spring season’. All children are welcome to bring something that is associated with spring. Some of the examples are flowers, animals, drawings, pictures, and books etc….
“This is a mouse. I brought it from home. My mummy said this is related to spring.”
We discussed how some animals that sleep during the winter, like bears, wake up when the weather warms up in the spring.
While learning centre time, children were split into two groups to explore the different learning areas.
In the room, the children continued to explore emotions. Today, they listened to the book ‘Happy hector’ by Polly Dunbar. The following discussion offered an opportunity for the children to express their own ideas of ‘When do you feel happy?’ and ‘How can we make someone happy?’. Joshan had a lovely idea, he said ‘We can make someone happy by giving them a kiss!”. Then Teos said, “But, we can’t kiss now because of Coronavirus.”. That was a really good point! After all, we decided to do an air kiss so we still can make someone happy in a safe way.
On the deck, children enjoyed gardening as part of the activities related to spring. They first identified what the plants needed to grow and also discussed how they would grow. They also remembered to go over the gardening procedures and then set to work. After the children filled the containers with soil and planted the seeds, and watered them. Can’t wait to see them sprout!!!!!
We hope you have a wonderful afternoon. Stay safe everyone!
