Good afternoon friends and families!
Today, we welcomed our friends; Orion, Nayla, Rosie, Quintin, Isabelle, Abel, Bella, Nikora, Ivy, Tua, Alia and our new friend Thomas!
This morning we enjoyed free play indoors until it was warm enough to play outdoors where our friends showed a lot of interest in the bikes and the obstacle course! When it was time to transition indoors for morning tea we found a shady spot to sit down together and sing “Hammer Hammer” – (in slow and fast versions!), “I had a tiny Turtle” and “Bee Bee”.
After morning tea we enjoyed a few group time activities together. Firstly in the book corner, we practiced being quiet and dour daily affirmations and then we read “Follow that tiger” and “Good morning Miffy”. We then made our way to see our special puppets; we got to say hello to our friend ‘Gordan The Zebra’ – we had lots of laughter and giggles in the room when he said hello with Miss Maddi! After we had lots of giggles our friends laid down with Miss Jordan, Miss Tayla and Miss Claudia to practice a mediation to calm their bodies down, we practiced taking big deep breaths in and out very slowly.
We then made our way outdoors to release energy and enjoy the beautiful autumn sun! Outdoors Miss Thais gathered our friends together and sung some Brazilian songs where our friends hold their hands and danced together. The children started to sing Portuguese songs with Miss Thais, which we love!!
Our friends are now resting before we play outdoors again this afternoon!
Much Love; Miss Thais, Maddi, Jordan and Tayla
