Happy Wednesday to all our Aqua parents. We hope you had a fun filled Wednesday like we had at BBC today.
We started our morning off with some dancing. In Aqua the children love to dress up and put on let it go and many other songs to move their bodies to the beat of the music. dancing is a great way to develop large gross motor skills.
As the children are exploring Zoo animals this month, we have been setting up many activities related to them. Outside the children made a zoo with Liza, they found a big tub and placed the large zoo animals inside. They sat around it and spoke about the patterns on the zebra.
Children then had the opportunity to make a zebra using marbles and a box. They used fine motor control to make the marbles roll over the paper. They also repeated the colours black and white. We spoke about the stripes on the zebra.
Inside Donna set up a small zoo world. The children had the opportunity to explore the animals and look at the books provided. Nicholas was especially excited to explore and find the matching animals with the book. He found the giraffe that we made yesterday and the zebra that he explored today. Henry loved the Mummy and baby Kangaroos and enjoyed looking at the book ‘’What’s in your pocket’’.
Many of the children really enjoyed this activity and are super excited to make a zoo on the wall. Feel free to come and have a look at the children’s creativity when you have a moment.
Some of the children experienced free art today. We used balloons filled with Sand and made many dots with the paint. They really enjoyed the experience and made many beautiful pictures.
Iris and Sara enjoyed some story time together, its nice to see the children sitting and interacting with each other. They spoke about the pictures in their books.
We would like to take the time to wish our friend Nishka a big Happy Birthday. Today she turned 3 and brought some wonderful cupcakes to share. Thank you Nishka and we hope you have a wonderful day with your family.
