Morning tea- Homemade bean on Sourdough Turkish
Morning group –
We started with our morning routine:
• Good morning song.
• Days of the week
• Counting and number recognition
• Colour recognition
• Revising our shapes
This morning Miss Thea read the book ‘There is a hippopotamus, on my roof eating cake’. It is a funny story. The hippo was riding a bike, eating cake on a girl’s house. Also, he is working at the zoo. Children showed great listening skills and they laughed and laughed with Miss Thea. Then we enjoyed Arakan and free indoor play.
As a transition to morning tea, the children were called in groups of four and washed their hands with soap and water.
Before lunch, Mr Lachie created a great story called ‘2 dinosaurs go to Movie World’. Then the children learned how important it is to clean up their house before going out.
Lunch – brown rice, tofu, corn, cucumber, tomato and tuna
Inside, the children are given variety of opportunities to develop their fine motor, social, role play, construction, coordination and cognitive skills through activities.
The activities available today were:
– Home corner, the children can play with toy food, babies, cots, phones, vacuum, microwave, kettle, café area, doll house, dress up – (dramatic play, memory, social, fine motor, imaginative, pretend play)
– Book corner (Self soothing, letter/colour recognition, social)
– Lego and wooden construction blocks. It was great to see that the children are still interested in these toys, creating whatever they could think of. It lovely to see small groups of children sitting together while building, they talk to each other and compare their creations. – (creative, social, sharing, fine motor)
– Magnetic shapes, the children absolutely love these. They share these items very well and create amazing things individually or in small groups. (Fine motor, creative, social, communication, imagination, friendships, trial and error)
– Animal Counting, Children enjoyed counting how many animals in their house and they can put the same numbers on the house. This activity is great for their colour and number recognition, also their counting skills. (colour & number recognition, counting, animals, fine motor, sharing, social, concentration)
– Cutting was popular today, the children are able to choose this activity freely from our art area. We have scrap paper for the children to cut and we encourage each child to pack away when finished. (fine motor, hand eye co-ordination, concentration, independence)
Arakan class with Mr Dan: Everyone tried this today as Mr Dan came early, so no one missed out when they went to gymnastics.
Gymnastics: Finn, Abbi, Emmy, Lazar,George, Joseph, Tianna
Have a lovely weekend
