Jingeri friends and families of our Kindergarten 1 class, we hope that all our friends and families all enjoyed their evening and Welcome back to another beautiful day in Kindergarten 1! Here is a little bit about our Terrific Tuesday. Welcome to our blog for Monday the 19th of April 2021…
Before we begin here are some reminders:
• ANZAC day is this week we are looking for photos of family members in the military. If you have any please bring in or email to the office.
• Please join us for our ANZAC service THIS FRIDAY 23rd April at 2.30pm in the PK/SK yard.
• Parent/Teacher meetings are filling up- Please place your child’s name in a slot (the sheet is by the Ipad) These will begin May 10th. We will be discussing new goals and anything our friends may need to develop as well as School reediness. A meeting with your teacher is the first step to a collaborative partnership focused on the best interests of your child.
This morning the sun was shining big, bright and beautiful! Friends were already exploring the yard, the bike were zooming up and down the path with friends developing their gross motor skills- they also had the obstacle course out and friends loved the balance beams, rocking back and fore! Friends also explored the variety of connecting blocks we had in the trays, friends made a space rocket and a tower. With the bigger connecting blocks friends worked in a team to create a cubby house. The sandpit was busy with friends making pancakes, birthday cake, sand castles and using the dinosaurs to create a small dino land!
Once it was time to head inside to begin our program for the day and fill up our hungry bellies with delicious morning tea. We all lined up as strong and tall soldiers before marching our way back inside putting our hats away and joining Miss Kate on the group time mat, where this morning we started off our warm up dance – and for a change we chose “uptown girl”. Miss Kate called out to her weather bird and we placed the weather cards on our Aboriginal Weather chart, we then Recapped sounds that we have been learning. This week the letter and sound “p” down the pirates plait and around his face.
Look at it, Say it, write it,
Words beginning with “p”
Pizza, panda, parrot, pirate, pancakes, pineapple, popcorn, please, push, pull, playdough, princess, pink, purple, pompom and lots more!!
We then transitioned with number recognition, placed on sunscreen and washed our hands. Our morning tea today was delicious cake and fruit- we ate it all up! Yummy!!When everyone had finished eating we all re joined Miss Kate back on the group time mat for our affirmations. Today as a group we repeated affirmations then Miss Kate stated that one by one we would look in the mirror and state our affirmation, Miss Kate would write it on the mirror. I am… Big, Powerful, enough, beautiful, powerful, strong, brave, kind, a great friend, capable, patient and persistent.
To extend “p” we painted with pegs and pompoms using pink, purple and peach paint. Miss Bea wrote friends names and with the pom poms friends dotted the painted to create their name. Also to extend “p” friends wanted to get creative with the playdough and make “p” objects. We had a delicious pizza, two very pretty princess with long hair, a palace for them to live in and a pineapple! Great job friends!! Other friends used the blocks to construct a palace too! The café was in full swing with Emily serving the customers, Miss Kate joined in and was treated to pancakes and a coffee. Other friends enjoyed the doll house, the role played beautiful incorporating the horse, trucks and cars. We then engaged in our gratitude meditation and read the story “ANZAC TED”.
It was soon time for lunch – today we enjoyed yummy noodles and Salad bar! Once our bellies were full we rested their bodies and minds before we all journaled what we are grateful for.
This afternoon we engaged in quiet activities, friends enjoyed playing dominos so much yesterday they requested it again! Kindy 2 then joined us to practise our ANZAC service songs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FqtttbbYfSM
Ode of remembrance
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old; Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them.
We would love if families could support friends in learning these.
Thank you friends for a great day and a great way to start the week off with!
Lots of love Miss Kate, Miss Bea and Miss Shannen xx
