Hello Everybody! We’re definitely getting closer to Christmas as the kids have started to talk about Santa which is very exciting! The girls are all massive fans of Christmas so they are just as excited! In the meantime here is what we are up to this week in Ardenza.
In the baby room Suzanne and Geraldine are doing the colour orange with the babies. In circle time they will fill the baskets with orange toys, blocks and balls and repeat the word orange. The girls will point out orange colours in books and pictures and in any clothes the babies are wearing. For sensory play the babies will get messy with orange paint, orange flour and orange water.
In the toddler room Bernie and Shell are doing transport with the children. In circle time the girls will ask the children about how they get to crèche and will talk about how they get to work too. They will look at pictures of cars, buses, boats and planes and talk about them . Bernie and Shell will read stories on bus journeys and do role play using the chairs to make pretend bus journeys and plane journeys singing songs like the wheels on the bus and flying on an airplane. They will also colour transport activity.
Upstairs the ECCE room and preschool room are doing textures.
In circle time Mary Ann, Lisa and Sarah will discuss with the children different words to describe textures. They will ask children to describe things best they can and help them with words. They will use the texture boards and cloths and ask the children to describe them and make up gloopy and messy textures to feel and touch. Hopefully the pre-schoolers will add a few new words to their vocabulary by the end of the week!
Hope ye have a great week!
