Happy Humpday 😊 the children were calm today, maybe the rainy weather… Belle and Cali sat down with Miss Ione and play with the abacus and the sensory bottles in the kitchen area. Hugo, Leon and Cohen climbed the obstacle circuit along the fence, holding on to it and following each other. Quinn was using the van walker to go around the yard observing his friends, sometimes he would pick up bottles from the kitchen and give them a ride around and come back and handle them to Miss Ione or Belle. Mia was busy playing with everything around the yard, she keeps herself busy busy, home corner, obstacle circuit, reading books, observing her friends climbing the obstacle she tried to copy them as well.Today we did the group time outside with babies 1 , we said Hello to everyone sitting, we did the aboriginal acknowledgement to the land and we sang some songs all together. After we went inside to eat morning tea and then we sat down together to read a book “ Give me space” talks about having our own quiet time to be with ourselves and our mind, relaxing and being calm. We read the book in the relax area and explain to them they can come anytime there to have a little bit of time, read, relax or play with sensory toys.
-Today we had the slide inside again for all those babies that couldn’t enjoy the play time yesterday, we also had the cars and the roads but the children end up putting the cars and trucks down the slide, Cali got the eggs from the kitchen and put them down the slide, observing them going down the ramp and clapping out of joy. Cohen, Leon, Quinn and Hugo all had a turn grabbing cars and trucks to throw down the slide.
Indoor and outdoor play combined:
-playdough and pizza cutters: Cali, Hugo, Leon and Quinn sat down for a while in the table indoors to manipulate the pizza cutters and cut the playdough. Some friends from babies 1 joined them as well.
-outdoor play: Hugo, Leon and Isaac did races with the bikes. They also brough the cars outside and threw them down the foam ramp (making connections in between play experiences), Isaac and Cali played with to pass the ball with Miss Bea.
Hope you have a great evening,
Miss Marina & Miss Ione
