Morning tea- rice crackers with cheese, sultanas 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
Children were then asked to share the most enjoyable part of their weekend with the classroom whilst being introduced to used past tenses. Miss Sana then introduced today’s Halloween/emotion collaging activity where they were required to make their own ghost by collaging and choosing their preferred facial expressions (happy, excited, angry or excited emotions were offered for children to choose from).Miss Sana continued with explaining that those are just pretend ghost for Halloween and we don’t need to be afraid of them. The group time was finished by reading Angelina’s book called ‘magic ballerina’.

Before lunch, children sat with Miss Vee (art teacher), where they enjoyed listening to a book called ‘I am human’ which was about life and all the possibilities presented. Children then participate in a quick meditation session where they practised deep breathing.
