Dear families and friends,
We started our day outside alongside Kindergarten One friends. The activities offered outside included maintaining our balance on balancing beams, pretend to cook in mud kitchen and spinning disks. The children also enjoyed exploring water connectors in water troughs. Besides the slides, climbing forts and the sandpit, our friends had the opportunity to have a quiet corner with books and cushions on the mat in case they needed to relax their minds.
At 9.30, we all washed our hand and sat on the mat to start our group time. We sang songs, identified today’s day, date and weather with the teacher’s helper, Spencer and acknowledged the country. We then continued with identifying the letter of the week letter N. The children identified the letter, pronounced it’s sound and helped Miss Qiu recognising objects on letter N card. The children also pronounced the sound of letters from letter A to letter N. Our friends transitioned to Morning Tea by individually making the sound of each letter Miss Qiu pointed to.
During Morning Tea (custard with fruits), We thanked Mason and his dad for sharing the yummy muffins they made.
For today’s activity time, we split the classroom in two groups. The first group headed outside with Miss Qiu where they played group games such as the tag game, doggy doggy where is your bone, duck duck goose and
After Morning Tea, Matilda shared her experience with Mr Cockatoo with the classroom. She talked about what they did and all the fun they had. Thanks Matilda for sharing.
Before lunch, Connor read his book called ‘the ladybird heard’. It was a great book and Connor read it with such excitement. Thanks Connor for sharing.
During quiet time, Miss Qiu will draw an easy picture on the board using shapes. The children will then be required to try to draw the same picture, write their name and date the page on their own exercise book. During this time, the educators will focus on children’s correct grip and support their writing skill.
Hope everyone has a lovely afternoon!
Miss Qiu, Miss Sana and Mr Pete
