This week the world tray has African Animals and lots of small bits for the children to make a habitat. Playing in the world tray stimulates conversations between children and for the next two weeks they will be learing about the animals of Africa. The small bits add lots of sensory experience to the play.
Every year we welcome Cecilia and her dogs to Pre School to learn about being responsible around dogs. This year Cecilia brought in Elmo to teach us to recognise when a dog is happy or angry, when it is safe to touch dogs and we practiced by approaching Elmo and his owner to ask for a pat.
Remember: NO Owner, NO Leash, NO PAT
Children have some information in their pigeonholes.
Bindi Bun Bun had to find a new home and Mrs Gayle knew just the family. We know that Tao and his Mum love animals. This week Tao has brought in a grasshopper and two geckos and today he got to take home a rabbit! But first Bindi Bun Bun spent the day with us all at Pre School. Bindi Bun Bun spotted Tao’s special gentle way with animals immediately and they bonded well during the session. Have fun with your new pet at home Tao.
This week we started a Kinderobics program at Pre School. Each Tuesday for the rest of the Term, Year 9 students from Managatang P-12 College Advance Class are coming to Pre School to take the group for some exercises. This week we focused on BALANCE. We sang songs and moved to the music and we play with a wriggly rope. Thanks girls – a great start.
On Thursday The Royal Flying Dentist visited our Pre School for education sessions with the children and parents and to give the children a check up. We all got a toothbrush and a mirror to keep. It is the first time this Dentist has visited a service where the children had no cavities. Congratulations families – this is an amazing effort. So there will be no reports in you mail slots next week! This excellect result is a indication of your committment to feeding you children healthy foods and helping them clean their teeth regularly.
