Morning tea- Cake with fruit

Morning group –
We started with our morning routine:
• Good morning song
• Days of the week
• Counting and number recognition
• Colour recognition/ rainbow song
This morning Miss Thea introduced some green paint, this was to continue our learning of colours. Miss Thea asked the children to look around the room to find any green objects. As they called out the object Miss Thea would use the green paint to paint it.
As a transition to play time the children were asked to place their green chairs back at the table.

Before lunch children enjoyed dancing with songs such as ‘baby shark’, ‘dinosaur stomp’, ‘wiggles’ and ‘freeze’ song. Miss Thea then used some felt puppets to sing some songs with. We sang ‘Five little speckled frogs’, ‘Five cheeky monkeys’ and ‘Five little dinosaurs. As we sang these songs we used our colour and counting skills.

Lunch – shepherd’s pie with vegetables

Inside, the children are given variety of opportunities to develop their fine motor, social, role play, construction, coordination and cognitive skills through activities.
