Morning tea- Fruit, custard and granola
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, We decided to do a cutting activity. So we combined playdough making and cutting it up with the scissors. The children were really enjoying this activity and they all took part.
As a transition to morning tea, Mr Lachie asked each child to identify a shape before washing their hands.
Before lunch, Mr Lachie created his own story ‘A Sheep and an Elephant did hide and seek’. Children were listening to his story carefully and laughed many times.
Lunch – falafel, cucumber, cones, cheese and wraps
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:
– Home corner, the children can play with toy food, babies, cots, phones, vacuum, microwave, kettle, café area, doll house, dress up – (dramatic play, memory, social, fine motor, imaginative, pretend play)
– Book corner (Self soothing, letter/colour recognition, social)
– Lego and wooden construction blocks. It was great to see that the children are still interested in these toys, creating whatever they could think of. It lovely to see small groups of children sitting together while building, they talk to each other and compare their creations. – (creative, social, sharing, fine motor)
– Cutting with Easter materials, Children enjoyed pasting a lot of materials with glue by their own choices. (fine motor, hand eye co-ordination, concentration, independence)
– The children were able to explore cold yellow playdough, supervised by Mr Lachie and Miss Rowena. The children were enjoyed cutting the playdough with scissors. (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)
