Hello Everybody, hope you had a lovely Easter and aren’t too full! Here is what we are up to this week.
In the baby room Suzanne and Geraldine are doing baby animals with the babies. In circle time the girls will look at pictures and stories of baby animals, pointing them out, describing them and doing the sounds of that animal. The girls will read stories on baby animals and sing songs like 'Old MacDonald' changing it to baby animals. Suzanne will do a big drawing of baby animals and stick it on the wall and ask the babies to paint it. The babies will also get to use their fine motor skills as they will make baby lambs with cotton wool and baby calves with crepe paper. The babies will also get to use baby animal puzzles.
In the toddler room Bernie and Laura are doing zoo animals with the children. In circle time the girls will chat to the children about their trips to the zoo and ask them what animals they saw there. The girls will show the children pictures of all the different animals at the zoo and describe how they look and sound. They will do role play acting like zoo animals and do zoo animal yoga! The children will get to play with animal figurines and puzzles and colour pictures. Hopefully the weather will be nice so that they can act like zoo animals outside!
Upstairs the preschool rooms are doing fire safety.
In circle time Shell, Mary Ann and Lisa will talk to the kids about fire and how dangerous it is. They will have discussions on what can happen in certain situations with fire and how it is not a thing we play with.
They will talk about what happens if there is a fire and how toys and objects must stay behind and new ones can be bought. If possible parents might send in their fire plan that they have at home and what ye do when there’s a fire. The girls will do fire drills in the crèche and do role play of fire safety. There will be lots of firemen and women to colour and dressing up fun in fire safety costumes.
Have a great week.
