Hello Everybody! Here is what we are up to in Ardenza this week!
In the baby room Suzanne and Geraldine are singing 'The wheels on the bus' with the babies. It's already some of the babies' favourite song to move to so the girls will show them the actions. In song time the babies and girl will sit in a circle and sing the song slowly and do the actions to each part helping the babies to move to the right action. Luckily the babies can see the bus stopping outside so any time the bus is outside the girls will burst into song encouraging the babies to sing and move. The babies will also get to use the musical instruments for the song and have some fun. Suzanne will also provide bus colouring sheets for the babies to scribble on.
In the toddler room Bernie and Shell are doing pets with the children. In circle time Bernie will tell the children all about Toby her doggy and ask them about their pets or pets that their grandparents might have. The girls will talk about safety with animals and encourage the children to not grab or pull at animals. They will look at pictures of different pets and read stories like 'The greedy dog' and 'Spot the dog'. Shell will provide pet colouring sheets and the kids will do animal puzzles.
Upstairs the ECCE rooms are doing numbers, counting and summer time.
In circle time Lisa and Mary Ann will do counting activities with the kids encouraging them to count themselves as far as they can and correcting them discreetly if they get it wrong. They will count each other, objects in the room, the steps in the stairs as they go down and up and they will count number books. They will do number puzzles like the animal number train and number matching and do number peg boards that help children trace the numbers. They will also do number recognition activity sheets.
And in Trisha’s room she will discuss summer time with the children. She will include the changes in weather, clothes we wear, beach and sun safety and insects that pop out in summer. The kids will get to do summer activity sheets and Trisha will get them all excited for the summer games and paddling pool fun Ardenza has out in the garden during the summer time!
It’s beginning to look a lot like summer!
Have a great week!
