Morning tea- cake and fruit

Morning group –
We started with our morning routine:
• Good morning song
• Days of the week
• Counting and number recognition
• ABC and letter recognition
Miss Thea then read the books called ‘This is a red book’ and ‘the very cranky bear’. The children showed a real enjoyment with these and read along with Miss Thea.

Before lunch, children were asked to sit in a circle and as one big group we enjoyed playing ‘who’s under the blanket’ game where everyone had all had lots of fun. We then read the story ‘room on the broom’.

Lunch – burgers with salad

Thank you Sua for bringing in some icey poles to share with your friends!
