Hello, Crimson families.

Thursday is here! In the morning before morning tea, each child chose and enjoyed an activity based on their own interests. Leo, Thomas HP, Luca, and Levi had a fun time with table football game while Shona, Elise, Georgia, Saige and Isla were busy drawing.

In the morning group time, we all gathered on the mat and played a fun game. After that, we separated into two small groups and had a learning centre time.

Inside the room, a group of children took part in a card game with Arturo. The children used their memory skills and visual discrimination skills to try this game. In the end, all the children managed to collect all the cards they could find.

On the deck, another group of children listened very very well while Alejandra was reading books about animals, cars and numbers. All the children were confident to answer questions and were able to count each object in the book.

 

On the construction table, Henry and Olivia collaboratively built shelters for animals. They were so proud when they made triangles using square magnetic tiles.

Isla, Elise, Georgia and Adeline were busy taking care of babies in the tent. They were feeding baby food and milk to their babies and putting them to sleep. Good job girls!

Max W and Jack enjoyed each other’s company with spaceships and space cars. Because there were no astronauts, they decided to used superheroes instead.

 

Thank you for the fun Thursday. See you tomorrow!

 

 Welcome Crimson families.

It is great to see the smooth transition of children in new room and routines. Young children are mixing with the older groups of children and learning different skills of physical and creative development. Today’s early morning group time, we had a discussion about News Time and how to ask interactive questions.

In the News Time, Poppy discussed Boris and Donnell, Isla brought her baby and sleeping bag, Olivia came up with a doll, Luca brought his wristwatch with an alligator on it and Oscar brought his special car which can move when wheels were pressed. All children were confident in sharing News with their peers. The group time also involved open need conversation about News.

The learning centre was fun today with letters and numbers. Children matched favourite numbers with letters of their names. Physical movement enabled children to develop motor skills as well as cognitive skills.

In the outdoor learning space, Poppy, Elise, Georgia, and Isla were having so much fun in the tent. They were creating their own play with potato heads and mobiles inside the tent. Jeffrey and Isabelle have engaged in construction work through Jenga. Luca joined construction with dinosaurs with Edward R.

In the indoor learning space, the doll was a big hit today after construction. A group of children were engaged with creating their own world. On the other side, children were engaged in construction through train tracks. The construction involves social interaction among children to develop their communication skills.

 

The weather was looking clear before lunchtime. We took that opportunity to play in the sandpit and yard for a few minutes. We had a wonderful day in Crimson Room.

 

Have a lovely afternoon. See you tomorrow.
