Weekly Wrap (30th September 2016)
Our first week of the school holidays has been fun and enjoyable for our children. During school holidays we do not have our structured program running, this allows for a more relaxed informal time for children.
We have started our Summer Routine. We will be starting the day outside in the morning. A teacher will be inside to greet families and to guide children’s artworks. Children will then be able to engage in our learning activities outside. We will all be inside at 11am, during the hotter time of the day. As part of sun safe all children will be inside or under the shade from 11am to 3pm. For details of the Summer Routine, please click here:
Be sun safe:
- Please apply sunscreen to your child each morning when you are dressing them. We will apply again early afternoon before any outside play.
- Please send your child to preschool with a sun safe hat – broad brimmed or bucket hat. Caps do not provide protection for your child’s ears or back of the neck.
We have had a busy and full week:
- Monday saw Educators and children discover and explore some changes in the Preschool after the Life Church Working Bee. The Preschool was spick and span with a tidy up and few repairs. In consultation with the educational team new shelves were installed and some changes to the learning centres. Our block area has been expanded due to children’s interests in creating complex and large ongoing constructions. Home corner has moved to encourage greater support in this area and allow access to the children for longer periods of time.
- A CSIRO science show presented by Bec Lynch on Tuesday. Bec donated her time and expertise in presenting the show. Children were enthralled with the motion of air and the ways we can see it work by heating and expanding, freezing and contracting to change its structure; and using gravity to move balloons and balls.
