Mother’s Day in the Park
Friday, 7th May, 3:30-4:30pm
Spare clothes (bottoms)
If you have old pants that your child isn’t interested in wearing anymore, we’d love to have them for ‘accidents’!
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, Hendrix 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.
Today’s activities included connectors, open ended cylinder, blocks, alphabet puzzle and the clinic area. Those children who were interested, participated in a collaging activity with Miss Qiu where they made flowers.
Before lunch (sushi bowl with salad), our friends had a dancing class with Miss Jane. First, they started with some hopscotch. Our friends made a line and performed the hopscotch one by one to funky music.
Then, they did some somersaults (tuck and roll) on the hopscotch mat.
Finally, they practised hopping over the mat and landing with both feet and most importantly, soft knees.
After dancing, Hendrix shared his show and tell with the classroom. He talked about his costume, how he made it and why. At the end he answered to his friend’s questions. Thanks Hendrix 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.
Thanks Kindergarten Two for an awesome day.
Miss Qiu and Miss Sana x.
