Morning tea- Apple crumbles, fruit salad
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 Mr Lachie read the children the story ‘Dirty Mutt’. The children then had a group discussion about the weather. Everyone was happy to tell Mr Lachie about the rain at their house.
As a transition the children were asked to identify the colour on their shirt or pants.
Before lunch, Miss Remi read ‘The Red Book’ and ‘The Very Busy Spider’. Then, we had a group discussion about colours and numbers. Like How many legs does a spider have?
After some discussion, we sang ‘Rain Rain go away’.
Lunch – Falafel, wrap and salad bar
Inside, the children are given variety of opportunities to develop their fine motor, social, role play, construction, coordination and cognitive skills through activities.
