Welcoming new children
Harmony Day Celebration
Children had the opportunity to celebrate belonging within a community as they took part in celebrating Harmony Day which took place on the 21st of March. Children participated in discussions about respecting one another and allowing each other to feel a sense of belonging within the preschool. Children were able to learn ways for making this to happen; by being nice and kind, welcoming children to their play, respecting our cultural differences.
All children had a lovely day, sharing some cultural food together while enjoying the outdoors during the picnic lunch.
We have fish!!
Our Healthy Eating Project "God Made Healthy Food"
we continued learning about healthy eating this month by having lots of discussions about what is healthy food, we linked this learning with the fact that all the food that God had made is healthy as it is directly from nature, children now recognise that we need to minimise processed food and food that is full of sugar and salt.
Children enjoyed sorting fruit and vegetables and where they grow, sorting out if the crop grows on a vine, a tree or under ground. Children participated in a hands-on learning opportunity where they were required to place the image of fruits and vegetables in the correct environment. All this is displayed on our project board. Come and take a look!
Show and Tell
Children are growing in confidence as they engage in show and tell, sharing items from home or talking about a significant event that is meaningful to them. It is lovely to see all the children having a voice within the program. The children are practicing their talking and listening skills daily during this session.
At the beginning of this year we asked that all families bring in a family photo for children to share on their news day. We are still waiting for some families to bring in a family photo which will be displayed on our lovely family tree.
