Hello Every bod,y here is what we are up to this week in Ardenza!
In the baby room this week the babies are going to be hiding on Suzanne and Geraldine as they learn about 'Peek a Boo!'. The girls will sit down in the cosy corner with the babies and use their hands and blankets to hide the babies. Peek a Boo' will be chanted and there will be lots of questions as to where the babies are! There will also be screams and excitement and lots of laughter. At 10 months babies start to look for objects once they are hidden or taken out of view so there will be peek a boo games played with toys too! Hidey boo!
In the toddler room it's all about counting as the children start to learn about their numbers. Mary Ann and Aileen will teach the babies how to count 1 to 10 although lots of our clever toddlers know how to count already. The girls will count objects and people in the room as well as looking at number books and pointing out the numbers to help with number recognition. The toddler room has lots of number puzzles and blocks to count and there will be lots of fingers and toes to count too I'm sure! The children will also have number sheets to colour.
Upstairs the ECCE rooms are doing flowers and occupations.
In circle time Lisa and Tia will discuss how flowers grow, the parts of a flower and their colours. The children will also learn a few flowers names and look at pictures of them describing them as they go. They will learn flower songs and do lots of flower crafts using crepe paper,egg cartons and paint. If any children have a few flowers in their back garden that aren't too important to the garden maybe they could bring one in and the children could decorate a vase in the crèche for them?
And in the other preschool room the children will be learning about occupations. They will learn about the different occupations there are and get asked about what they would like to do when bigger. They will be encouraged to speak about it and will get to colour a picture of that occupation. They will get to do role play using the dress up clothes and encouraged to use their imagination and any job is possible!lots of fun this week!
Lots to learn and do in Ardenza this week! Enjoy the long weekend!
