Good afternoon families. Today we were joined by our friends Astin, Natalia, Evan, Elle, Penny, Olivia, Emilia and Georgie. With many of our friends arriving late today Miss Stacey had a lovely quiet morning playing inside with the babies, they played inside a giant cardboard box making pictures on it with crayon and pencils. They also used their imaginations riding around in the box like it was a car. When Miss Hayley and the others arrived we all went inside for morning tea. We enjoyed delicious peach yogurt cups. After morning tea we all sat at the table to make hand shaped dot paintings as part of Reconciliation Week. Everyone sat at the table together to make the artwork. They all enjoyed looking at the hands and concentrated intently when they were trying to make the different coloured dots.
When we were finished the craft activity we all went outside for a play. The babies enjoyed going up and down the slide, building block towers, counting the babies and dancing to Wiggles music. They especially enjoyed dancing the hokey pokey! After this it was getting cold so we went inside for group time. For group time we all sat together at the table and made patting sounds with our hands, we tickled the table and then each other, practiced saying our names and counting with our fingers. After this we sang:
• Open Shut Them
• If Your Happy and You Know it
• Twinkle Twinkle
• 3 cheeky monkey’s
• Old McDonalds Farm
• Heads shoulders knees and toes
Thanks for a fun filled day babies, stay warm and we will see you tomorrow.
From Miss Hayley and Miss Stacey
