Morning tea- yoghurt with cereal and fruits

Morning group –
We started with our morning routine:
• Good morning song
• Days of the week
• Counting and number recognition
• ABC and letter recognition
Today, we stood up and practiced our Christmas songs. We then revised our classroom rules and listened to Miss Sana explaining today’s activity. We also had a little group discussion about what Christmas and things we do during Christmas time, children also participated by sharing their ideas and thoughts. We finished our group time with reading Fynlee’s book called ‘all my treasures’ and Zavier’s Wiggles book. Thanks, friends, for sharing your books with us.

Before lunch, children sat with Miss Mackenzie and enjoyed reading ‘The invisible string’ book followed by a quick meditation session where children practised deep breathing and let their imaginations go beyond.

Lunch – sausage rolls with vegetables
Inside children were given variety of opportunities to develop their fine motor, social, role play, construction, coordination and cognitive skills through activities such as:
– Train track- (fine motor, social, communication, creative, hand eye- co-ordination)

Due to the cooler weather, we decided to split the children into two groups. Allowing each group to have 20mins outside time. Outside the children were able to explore:
– Cubby houses (dramatic play, social, communication)
