Morning tea- some fruits and baked beans with bread

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 Rowena has talked about ANZAC day. Children leaned about many solders fought for us and we watched some vide and sang a song ’Waltzing Matilda’. Actually, they loved this song.

As a transition to morning tea, Children moved to bathroom to wash their hands singing Waltzing Matilda.

Before lunch, Mr Lachie read ‘Going on a bear hunt’. They showed great concentration.

Lunch – fried rice and some healthy vegetable
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:
– The children enjoyed painting on the paper plate to make a poppy, supervised by Miss Rowena. The children were enjoyed painting with their brush. (Fine motor, sensory, following direction, creativity, social, communication, imaginative)
– Blue and Pink sand in our sensory tray. The children were able to explore this with cups, scoops and bowls. We find this activity very popular, the children seem to calm down when exploring the rice. (sensory, social, communication, fine motor, colour recognition)
