A new year begins in Ardenza

A new year begins in Ardenza

Hello Everybody! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year’s ! it’s time to get the brains moving again after a very relaxed Christmas! Here is what we are up to this week in Ardenza!
In the baby room the Suzanne and Geraldine are teaching the babies about the letter D. In circle time the girls will sit with the babies and make 'Da, Da' sounds and point at objects and pictures beginning with D. They will look through picture books and alphabet books and try and make the babies aware of the letter and the sound of it. Some of our older babies are at that stage where they are picking up words everyday so hopefully they will have a few more by the end of the week! The babies will also get to scribble the letter D and paint pictures of objects beginning with D along with their usual songs, stories and sensory play.
In the toddler room Bernie and Shell are doing baby animals. In circle time the girls will look through animal books and point out the names of their babies. They will talk about the love that all mammies and daddies have for their babies and Bernie will read 'I’ll love you always'. Shell will show the toddlers pictures of different animals and describe them with the children. She will provide colouring pages to colour and do animal puzzles and jigsaws. There will also be role play of baby animals.
Upstairs the ECCE room and preschool rooms are doing farm animals.
Mary Ann, Lisa and Sarah will discuss what the different farm animals are in circle time and show them pictures. They will describe them and talk about what they live in and what they do. Sarah will go into more detail with the older class about what they provide for the farmer and how he takes care of them. The girls will show the children real pictures and videos of animals on the farm and read stories on farm animals. The children will get to do dress up and role play acting out farm scenarios and make lots of arts and crafts using a wide range of material. Lots of fun and learning to be had this week!
Have a great week!
