Then they will be rotating through some Fathers’ day activities.

·        Relay sport games.
·        Building in the construction area or digging in the sandpit
·        Hammering station with Dad
·        Funky photo booth   (may change due to weather). 
After the activity rotations have finished, the Dads and the children are welcome to kick back and enjoy a cold drink and some hot pies.

Day: Wednesday,29th, August 2018
TIME: 9.00-10.30am.  
Bring: Children can wear their favourite footy team colours or footy jersey (hope it’s Eagles colours).

Please let me know if you can attend. I know lots of Dads are busy and may work away. If this is the case Mum, a friend or Pop can come in instead on this day.

Kind regards Katie, Letitia and Rachel.

WEEK 4 letter sounds


Dear Parents,

The Kindies have moved on to learning their next set of alphabet letters: We learn to hear, say and recognise the written symbol.

We are onto the Blue set from our Diana Rigg literacy program.

M  R  E  C  D  H  K 

We still go back and revise our last set to make sure we don't forget them.

Mmmm  for mix. 

r   for rabbit

e for  egg

curly c  for car

d for dog

h  for hat 

kicking k  for kite.

The children might be recognising their letters  at home, in the car, in a book, at the shops on the fridge and from their name. Please help them with the sound the letter makes rather then the name of the alphabet letter.


Thank you for your support,

Miss Horrocks.

When play supports early literacy learning

Name fun with play dough 


Mark Making Table 







Putting labels to our pictures 













Initial letter sound brainstorms using song, toy surprise bags and stories. I get in trouble now by the children if I forget to label one of my pictures. 





Painting our letter formations- using our big hand movements on the easels 




Letter patterns in the sand boxes. 


We just love our play base learning in Kindy! 

WEEK 3: Farm to Plate


This week the  children viewed an educational video about a visit to a diary farm, a sheep farm and watched eggs being collected from a chicken coop.  The children were learning the importance of resources we can get from our farms.

The children then got to see and feel what it is like to milk a cow and even made their own butter like real farmers.


Thankfully our farms have had some rain in the last few weeks. The children know it's a bit scary on windy and rainy days at school, but now they know that we need rain for our farms. The children have been helping Miss Horrocks check the rain gauge each morning.






 This is the way we shake our cream, shake our cream, shake our cream, this is the way we shake our cream, early in the morning.

" Miss Horrock's it's turning yellow"

" it's becoming heavier"

" I hear it shaking"








 








This is the way we milk the cow...









We have been learning about positional words that help describe actions and movements. The children listened to the story  "Rosie's Walk" by Pat  Hutchins. The best way to remember our stories is to act out the story to remember the sequence in order. 

Here is Rosie and the Fox going ...
- across the yard
-around the pond
-over the haystack
- past the mill
- through the fence
- under the beehives. 













What a fun week to end our unit on farm animals. Next week we are leaping into the safari and jungle.
