Good afternoon families,
I hope you had a wonderful mothers day yesterday and we are all ready for the week ahead. We had a nice day today starting the day off with healthy lifestyle living, which involved us doing lots of different activities and exercises, pretending to be monsters, animals and playing new games together.
When we came inside we had lots of fun building different structures after looking at the structure book, playing with some new number counters, looking at the different numbers and Harrison was interested in what the symbols meant and how we can use them together, so we used them to add and subtract different numbers. We also had lots of fun playing in homecorner playing with the dress ups and with the plates and the play food.
The children then picked up the long cardboard tubes we had and decided that we would turn them into didgeridoos, by using red and orange paint and using our fingers to paint different patterns onto the tubes, we will be continuing to paint these throughout the week using the aboriginal colours and patterns, we then had a look at am Aboriginal book that we have available for us and then spoke about what the aboriginals used to paint, how they painted and what type of symbols they used to communicate and to tell stories. We then read the story “how the sun came to be”.
