Good afternoon families,
I hope everyone had a great weekend, we had a very exciting day today we changed our project and topic focus, we will now be learning about plants and the environment around us.
Today we had a big play outside and had morning tea with Kindy inside our classroom, we were able to talk to them about the rules inside our room and are getting very good at sitting at the table and waiting for our friends. When we were finished eating we said good bye to Kindy when they went into their room and we had our group time. We revised our colours and shapes and learnt what our new letter and number was for this week, we will be looking at the letter T and the number 2 throughout the week. Please encourage your child to find something at home that begins with the letter T so they can show us all what it is for show and tell.
We did some planting today, we made our own special greenhouse using paper, sandwich bag, cotton wool and broad bean seeds, you can see them hanging on our window inside. We will be talking about how plants grow and what they need to grow throughout the week, we will also continue this project over the next few weeks talking about sustainability, recycling and different things that happen around us such as seasons, weather, etc.
We had lots of fun today, we had a new friend come and join us called Miss Yumiki, she helped us complete some puzzles and helped us when we were completing our worksheets for the letter T and number 2, we had lots of fun showing her our toys and what we can play with inside.
