Outside this morning the children enjoyed:
- Strollers lawn mowers
- Soft blocks
We had a big long play outside before going inside.
This morning we gathered on the mat for our morning routine songs. We all sung our Aboriginal greeting song together, Ethan sung our days of the week and Josie told us that today is Wednesday!
The children are doing a really great job at learning our 3 Christmas songs, ‘Red red coat, When Santa got stuck up the chimney (which can both be found on youtube) and peppermint stick.
‘I took a lick of my peppermint stick and it tasted very yummy,
Used to be on my Christmas tree, but now its in my tummy.
Yum yum, yummy yum, yummy yummy yummy,
Used to be on my Christmas tree. But now its in my tummy.’
The children stayed on the mat for yoga before transitioning on to activity time. To transition the children to activity time the boys stood up and quietly walked to an activity and then the girls stood up and went off.
We had a variety of exciting activities for the children to explore:
On the table:
- Lego building
- Candy cane painting
- Bauble painting
The mat offered:
- Car and train track puzzle pieces
- Cars to accompany the children’s road works
- Santa’s little workshop with mini, babies and reindeers!
- Home corner
- Dress ups
Over all its been a lovely day
