Good evening families.

This morning at group time we sang our good morning song and days of the week song, we have the days printed so the children can sing and read the words.

To extend from the interest in storms, we talked about lightning and thunder today.

Miss Thea: “Do you think lightning is hot or cold?”

Ada: “Cold”

Miss Thea: “Lightning is actually very hot! (20,000 degrees)”

We also talked about thunder; thunder always comes after lightning. We even looked at some pictures of lightning!

Ceylon: “Thunder is very loud!”

Matilda: “I don’t like thunder”

Matilda: “I don’t like thunder”

Miss Thea: “Should we be scared of thunder?”

Some children said ‘yes’, some said ‘no’. we then talked about why we should

We will paint our own lightning strikes today, using yellow paint and white paper.

Before lunch the children all made their beds and did some dancing to their favorite songs such as “The Wiggles”, “The Freeze” song, “Baby shark”, “Sleeping bunnies” and “the action song”. We then sat on the mat and enjoyed reading a book called “can I cuddle the moon?”. To extend on with our activity today we listened to a song about the weather and seasons and had a little conversation about the weather and what we need to do to stay safe in different weather conditions.
