This morning, Miss Gillian and children had discussed about their long weekend. Everyone seemed like having a great holiday. They went to park and beach to have BBQ. Some one was watching TV with mum and dad.
As a transition to morning tea, Miss Gillian called children’s name 4×4. Then they moved to bathroom by holding hands
Before lunch, Miss Kaycee read a book called ‘ The gruffalo’ to tell them about a friendship. The children listened to her story quietly.
Lunch –healthy vegetable pie.
