In Literacy each week we learn a new letter sound and practise the letter sounds we have previously learnt. The children are loving being able to put sounds together to make a word like c a t for cat and are so good at beginning to have a go at writing the letters too! We have recently used the bee bot to help us find letter sounds, which the children loved!
We had so much fun with Nurse Sherie from PMH learning all about what it would be like if we had to go to the hospital. She told us that it is nothing to be scared of and showed us the things that would happen, like taking our blood pressure, listening to our heartbeat with a stethoscope, and check the temperature in our ear. We loved bandaging people up, using the crutches and wheelchair and giving injections and medicine to the sick patients!
Today we were lucky enough to have 2 police officers visit the school. They showed us their uniform and brought along a car an police van and we even got to have a look inside! We learned so many important things like the fact that we need to know our full name, our parents name and the suburb we live in. They also showed us their police badge that helps us to know they are real police officers.
I am so proud of how much the Red Rabbits are growing, they are always so enthusiastic when taking part in all of the activities in Kindy. Over the past 3 weeks we have enjoyed 50 days of school, played in our new learning areas, measured who is the smallest or biggest, had a go at reading and puddle jumped!
As part of learning about numbers we made some delicious number shaped biscuits. We read the recipe together, mixed the ingredients then rolled out and shaped the number of our choice. Once the biscuits were cooked we decorated them with the same number of chocolate chips.
Thank you so much for all of your amazing efforts when making the Nursery Rhyme dressing up costumes. The children had such a great time.
We have been learning lots of new things over the past couple of weeks in Kindy. We have enjoyed singing Nursery Rhymes in the home corner, practising counting and recognising numbers and making collections in lots of different ways.
We have had such fun singing and learning all about Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. We have printed stars, decorated stars, counted dots on stars as well as making yummy star shaped fairy bread and then order the sequence we did it in. We even had a go at writing about how we made it. True super twinkle star learners!
A huge well done to all of the children in their amazing efforts in the lap-a-thon they all did so well and should be very proud. Thank you to the parents who came along for all of you help too-it was much appreciated!
We have had so much fun at Kindy this week doing lots of Easter activities. We sized Easter eggs from biggest to smallest, made Easter egg biscuits with patterns
, threaded Easter eggs, made bunny baskets, painted Easter bunnies, made Easter headbands and we even had a visit from the Easter Bunny himself! The children were all so excited to see the Easter Bunny!
He brought us a special clue for us to go on an Easter egg hunt, which lead us through the Nature Playground and back to our classroom, where we found lots of Easter eggs. The children had a great time finding the eggs and putting them inside a hoop for us all to share. Once we had found them all we talked about how we could share them evenly and practised counting as we went to ensure we all had the same amount. At the end of the day we gave the children a little Easter present too (some ‘Bunny Tails’ and a pencil) to wish them all a Happy Easter! Have a look at some photos below.
