We will be giving out their invitations today, and we will personally place it in their bags. If your child is at school today, the invitations will be in their bags. Due to COVID, we can only allow 2 adults to graduation. Miss Qiu will print a list out and place it downstairs, on the easel. Please write the names of both adults. Thank you!

Good afternoon families and friends,
Happy Birthday, Oscar Sandford! Thank you for the yummy coconut-mango iced lollies!
This morning we had lots of outside play. Building tower with building blocks, playing puzzles and drawing lovely halloween pictures. When it was time to come inside, we gathered togethers, brushed ourselves down then washed up. We sat on the mat and sang our morning songs, greeted each other, talked about the day, the date and the year.
After morning tea, we had group time. Charlie brought Mr Dingo back, and talked about what he did with Mr Dingo. Mr Dingo got to go to the park with Charlie, they went down slides, on swings and through tunnels. Charlie said, “we had SO much fun.” They then went to his grandmas house and they had yummy ice cream. Olivia brought in a beautiful book called, ‘A birthday surprise for unicorn.’ Olivia said its her favourite book because its so colourful. Miss Bronagh read it to her friends.
We then talked about what activities we where going to play today. Following up from Skyla’s interest on ghosts, we had a ghost activity. Miss Qiu set out white paper for our friends to draw their ghost on. Then they drew the ghost eyes onto black or red paper. Four friends then cut them out and stuck them onto their ghost. Oscar. S seemed to enjoy this activity a lot. He had a bit of trouble trying to cut the ghost out, but with a little bit of help from Miss Bronagh he was able to use the scissors by himself. He decided to stay at the table and practise cutting up the bits of paper. Well done Oscar!
In the doctor’s clinic today, the children were busy negotiating roles. Who’s the doctor? Who’s the nurse? Who wants to be the patient? Yesterday, the children told each other that they were going for surgery, and that was the end of that. After we modelled how doctors ask lots of questions before treating his patient, the children were asking more questions today. “What happened? How much does it hurt? Where’s the nurse? I need a nurse!” Skyla volunteered to be the patient, who had a huge cut on her leg because she fell off a motorbike. Some boys noticed the body charts on display on the wall, and talked about the various things that can go wrong. For example, throwing up non-stop!
Arianna and Skyla played on the mat with the puppets. They where pretending to be friends and going for lunch and to the beach. Matthew, Milah and Isla sat at the small table and played with the sensory basket Miss Qiu set up. It had lots of different materials in it and they sat togethers, playing with each other for ages. Chen Xi and Koa spent time playing the Lego, making different shapes and learning from each other.
We gather on the mat and Miss Qiu read a story about space that Florence brought in for us to read. Miss Qiu then played a cool video about the doctors clinic to give the children new ideas fro our doctors clinic. It was then time for lunch, chicken wraps!
We had a great day today with our friends,
Miss Qiu and Miss Bronagh
