STORY TIME!

Children have been using a story sack ‘ The Animal Boogie’ and exploring about different creatures in the Jungle, what do they look like? and what they do in the Jungle?

The children have been learning about animal’s actions like leaping, stomping, shaking and flapping while looking different jungle’s creatures. They were creating their own animals and coping their actions. This way they were developing sensory perceptions by exploring, expressing and communicate ideas thoughts and feelings.

I enjoy exploring events and characters in stories and other texts, sharing my thoughts in different ways. LIT 0-01c

I use drama to explore real and imaginary situations, helping me understand my world. EXA 0-14a

Chinese New Year

The children in the toddler room have enjoyed learning about Chinese New Year and Chinese culture. They had sensory fun trying to find number cards hidden in the coloured noodles. The cards had pictures of pigs on them as 2019 is the year of the pig! The children also had sticky fun making their own coloured Chinese dragons. At snack time they sampled some traditional Chinese food and explored this with chopsticks. Everyone joined in and had a taste. The prawn crackers were a definite favourite!! Yummy!!
