Hello and good afternoon to all our Senior Kindy friends and families, welcome to Wednesday the 15th of January 2020.

This morning we had a little bit of rain and due to the wet weather we only had a few things out until the sun came out and dried up all the rain. We all still enjoyed playing in the outdoors while we could, as more friends arrived for the day we headed inside and continued our morning play inside, we all really enjoyed playing with the green playdough and the cookie cutters, Miss Shannen had a group of friends at a table making snowman’s, snails and even one big donut for us to all share topped with playdough icing and sprinkles. How we love the imagination the children have today!

Once we all shared our playdough donut we packed away our areas and joined Miss Stacey on the mat for our group time and felt/puppet stories. Today we read the book The Hungry Caterpillar along with our group time songs – days of the week, good morning and our welcome to country song.

We finished our group time off with singing our hand washing song as we all transitioned to the bathroom to wash our hands for morning tea. Today we had a yummy plate of fresh fruit along with a freshly baked cake. Mmm very yummy!

When everyone had finished eating we all put away our drink bottles, bowls and explored our play spaces together enjoying a free play morning. We had dress ups, superhero capes, café dinning, Lego building and today Miss Stacey brough in a packet of OzBees they are a water bead a great sensory activity that everyone loved we had lots of friends enjoy them and the feeling of them on their hands.

Today we had our very first Yoga lesson with Miss Lauren. Everyone was so excited for yoga we all made a big circle on the mat and copied Miss Laurens poses. We loved stretching our bodies and making our bodies into all different poses we loved making the dog and cat pose. We all did so very well with listening during the class. We all cant wait for next Wednesday to do yoga again.

Parents please kindy bring in your family photos for us to be able to add them to our family tree, you are more than welcome to send them to the centre via email and we can print them off for you here. Thank you.

We have also put our a big sleep chart in our room its in the shape of a big cloud. We have each child’s name written down on it with a few dot points on what your child’s comforter is, how long they sleep, what helps them get to sleep etc we will leave a pen next to our chart if parents can please add any more points to it on helping us and your child with sleeping at kindy.

Next Thursday we are having an early Australian Day celebration on the 23rd of January from 3pm-4pm we hope that everyone can come along and have an afternoon of games, dancing and eating Australian food. We are kindly asking if everyone can please bring along a plate of food to share and a gold coin donation that will be going to help the fires and the communities, we are also encouraging everyone to come dressed up for the day!

See you all tomorrow

Enjoy the photos

Miss Stacey and Miss Shannen xx
