Our Story-

This morning we enjoyed playing hide and seek in the garden with Miss Bianca, Connor loved trying to scare everyone from behind the Mushroom house. Lexie, Daisy and Karina loved playing on the seesaw together and taking it in turns pushing one another up and down. We then transitioned into the back yard to play on the slide and the playground forte. After our morning outdoors we all sat at the door and took our shoes and hats off and made our way inside for group time with Miss Pishaya, whilst Miss Bianca helped us on the toilet and prepared our yummy morning tea.

We began group time with a good morning song- “Good morning to you” “good morning to you” “good morning everybody good morning to “lexie” as we went around the room singing one another’s names. We then sang our daily acknowledgement to the Traditional custodians of this land in which we are here today “here is land, here is the sky, here are my friends and here am I”.

 

Today for group time Miss Bianca asked the children what they would like to read today, Klaus stood up and picked a book called “sharkie the shark” the children giggled and yelled is it a baby shark?. Once the story finished Miss Bianca asked the children where do sharks live? Diollo replied “in the ocean” and Daisy shouted “they have sharp teeth”.  We then sang 5 baby dinosaurs with the finger puppets and asked the children to count the puppets and recognise their colours. We then all prepared for morning tea. Today we enjoyed scrambled eggs and Turkish bread.

 

After morning teatime, it was time for the children to explore the activities and different learning environment’s that Miss Bianca, Mr Hiroshi and Miss Pishaya had set up and the children to self-select for themselves- This included:

 

  • Outdoor play
  • Sand play
  • Imaginary play with babies
  • Home corner
  • Creating roads with duplo tape and playing with ramps
  • Dancing and sports with Miss Ange
  • Loose parts corner

Today for activity time Miss Ange came to the Toddlers room and introduced herself and took everyone to the big yard for sports.  We were all so excited when we arrived at the yard and saw an obstacle course waiting for us.  Diollo was overly excited to jump through the hoops hoping on one leg and Klaus loved throwing the tennis ball into the cones, seeing if he could get it in the cone’s holes. The rest of us were so happy that we were in the big yard and wanted to explore the playground and large pirate ship.  Justin, Lexie, Mia and Connor loved hoping on the large swing together and making Miss Pishaya push them nice and high. Daisy, Yaolin and Klaus loved climbing up the rope netting and sliding down the slide together and Karina loved hiding in the tunnels and in the bushes around the back of the pirate ship.  Daisy loved making sand cakes with Miss Bianca in the sandpit and showing her how to make the perfect sandcastle with wet sand like she does at the beach with Daddy and Mummy. We then began to pack away and started preparing for lunch.  We then began to pack away and started preparing for lunch.

Prior to lunch the children are learning to help pack away the toys and grabbing their hats and shoes for a play outdoors. The Toddler two class are learning all about self-help skills this year and looking after their belongings and personal hygiene.  The children are doing a great job!

Today for lunch we loved serving up our own salad and nachos.  It was then time for us to head to bed and rest our bodies. We provide an opportunity for the children to re energise their little bodies. We need all our energy back to explore our environment for the afternoon. After our rest it was time for our afternoon tea, we had seasonal fruits and savoury muffins. After we finished afternoon tea, we put our plates away, put on our sunscreen, shoes, and hats and made our way outdoors to spend the afternoon with our friends and educators.

 

Thank you, Toddlers 2 for a fun day enjoy your weekend.
