What another beautiful spring day today, it is getting very hot now. Each morning the teachers apply sunscreen to all the children while we are in group time. At group time we talk about the weather and the importance of wearing sun cream and hats. The children are so good at putting their hats on now before going to the garden.
Starting our morning some children joined Alejandra for yoya.
Some of the children where super excited to go explore the garden this morning. Donna set up and made a house area for them to explore with the dolls, dress up and handbags, as all children have being enjoying playing with these resources. The car mat was a hit with many of the boy’s in the group, they enjoyed transporting them around the mat.
Also a big hit today was the farm house, many of the children explored all the animals. Beatrice made the sounds of the sheep and pig as we played here. The children were so engaged, even with each other. They spoke about giving them grass to eat and putting them to bed.
In the sandpit area, Adeline, Lily, Levi, Nicolas and Edward watched as Donna made some cup cakes for them, but the best thing was getting to walk on them and feel the sand squashing between their toes.
Harvey O, showed us how big he is getting and put his own shoes on. Well Done Harvey!! He also enjoyed time at the sea shell box and after listening to the ocean in the shell he helped Edward here it.
Emmeline and Isla painted a picture together and so did Georgia Green and her sister Elise.
The children showed us how well their cognitive skills work and made shapes in the sun, just like they did with Liza.
Learning Centre Time was full of spring activities, being creative the children made flowers, bees and a bee hive.
With Alejandra the children counted with Mister Caterpillar.
With Liza, the children are learning about healthy food options and today they displayed their every growing fine motor skills and used the knife to chop their own apple and then eat it. The children really enjoyed this activity.
What a fun filled Thursday we had today
