For Yoga we are doing Handa's Surprise. Ask the children to show you their “surprise” faces. There was lot's of good actions and story telling and remembering the sequence of events and which animals took which fruits.
The older children who will soon be leaving us, have been involved in drawing some pictures for their new teachers to be passed on.
We have been talking about our Golden Rules and why we need to have them. They are all about staying safe and having a good time. This week we have been looking at why we need listening ears. It could be that we are being told something to keep us safe, or that we need to listen for cars when we are trying to cross the road, or so we know what we are supposed to be doing now or next and just to listen when someone is talking to us. Finally, if we can hear other people talking then we need to wait until they are finished before interrupting them, unless of course, it is important enough to interrupt.
We have been reminding the children the importance of staying safe during the hot weather, such as wearing a hat and sun lotion and the importance of drinking plenty and if we get too hot to either go inside or in the shade to cool off for a bit.
Thursday we went to our outside area – we were on a hunt for more sticks to extend our den. It was raining and there was not enough room for everyone it was a squash and a squeeze. So we said we needed it bigger. We found some more big sticks to extend it. We all worked together. Time for songs and a story and then we needed to build a shelter so we could have our lunch out of the pitter patter rain drops.
