First day as a big Kindy Red Kid

Wow! What an amazing start Kindy Red have had to the year. The children are being champions during gathering time, knowing where to put all their belongings. Thank you parents for being so organised with labelling everything. 

Getting to know our new environment and eachother :  

The children have been busy exploring,finding their feet and meeting new friends in our morning and afternoon groups. 

This week we have been singing songs, reading stories about the first day of school, learning new routines, painting, creating collages and choosing stations that as I like to say to the children, 
" where would you like to choose to play/work to try to find your smile".  Sometimes this means heading to the same area that feels comfortable , a child might head off by themselves or alongside others and then as soon as they feel more confident and given the time they are playing, talking and laughing with a small group of friends. 

Everyday is a new day, different interests arise and as soon as a friend comes up with a great game, we all want to be involved. 

This week Kindy Red have loved using the paints, play dough, playing on the swings, riding the bikes and being busy in the home corner.

Well done Kindy Red on your terrific start to 2019. 

Check out our first week fun!  I forgotten how challenging it is to capture moments on the run haha! 

We had fun doing our Kissing hand for Mum and Dad. 

On our first Friday we went for a tour around the big school to visit places like the Hall, office and library.
