This week we celebrated Book Week in the Kinder Room! We asked the children what their favourite books were and if they could explain the plot of the story. This helps the children to develop their memory and recall skills as well as share what they have learned with others.
Today a group of pre-kinder children from Kool Kidz Mill Park went on an excursion to Woolworths Plenty Valley to participate in their Fresh Food Kids Discovery Tour.
The tour was really informative and engaging as they told the children (and educators) information and facts we didn’t know about their produce. We were given the opportunity to go into the bakery (wearing hairnets) and see how bread is made and then we also went out the back to have a good look at the produce store room, fridge and freezer! They also heard the bell ring indicating there was a truck that had arrived to bring some more items to the supermarket.
National Tree Day and Schools Tree Day combine to make Australia’s largest community tree planting and nature care event.
To celebrate Reconciliation Week last week, we read some Dreamtime stories; one of them being “The Rainbow Serpent”.
National Reconciliation Week Painting
National Reconciliation week was initiated in 1996 to provide a special focus for nationwide activities. The week is a time to reflect on achievements so far and the things which must still be done to achieve reconciliation.
Today in the Beetlebugs room we had lunch in the dining room.
This is a follow up from an observation from Ellis and Ava who were imitating to have a tea party out in the yard one afternoon and were having cake.
In the Butterflies room we have been celebrating Chinese New Year.
