Today our assistants are Grace and Anoop.
Assembly today was hosted by R/1RV & 3/4DP. Their theme was fairy tales and creating their own versions.
Trolls Can’t Stop the Feeling
The children love following the actions to this on the screen. They have picked up the moves so well!
After assembly, we went to the library. The book we shared this week was Blue Sky, Yellow Kite. The story was about a girl who saw a kite flying and went to see who was flying it. She stole the kite from the boy, but eventually returned it and said sorry. The boys came to find her and helped her to make her own kite.
After reading the story, the children shared their thoughts on the events of the story. We also spoke about what we can do if we want something that someone else has:
You need to ask them. If they say no, that means ‘no’. If they say yes, that means ‘yes’. – Sonny
If you want to get something from some people, then you need to say “can I please have treasure?” and if they say yes or no you listen. – Navya
You can make or you can make your own treasure and if someone has all the treasure or books, it’s not fair, so you can make the books – Nevaeh
If you have toys, you say ‘yes’ or ‘no’. – Brooklynne
Sometimes when I say no when my brother wants something, he just snatches and he doesn’t give it back, even when it’s mine. My mummy and daddy fix it and I get super happy. – Kobe H
Sometimes people snatch and it’s not nice. – Maddison
If you see another kite that somebody is flying and you just met them, if you snatch from your first friend, you realise that you stole it, then you have to talk back to their houses and you have to draw something that says, “I’m sorry for snatching your kite that’s actually yours.” – Eva
Investigations with R/1AM & R/1MS
Mrs Moise came at the beginning of investigations to talk about Diwali and Rangoli art. The children even got to make their own outside with some chalk.
The children settled into their play really well. We are always amazed at how little they need us each Friday. Kobe H also helped me to take some photos.
We had lots of creativity as the children used the paper plates to make clocks, masks and worlds. The children also used the glue and chalk to make their own slime. The children often choose the same activities, but it is so great to see them interacting with the children from the other classes.
This afternoon the children were able to do drawing as we listened to relaxation music.
We had Log Park all to ourselves this afternoon.
Nikolas took some photos:
Jacob B noticed that if he stood really tall, the stick was taller than me:
Ethan B did some fishing and then made a boat to go fishing with Sonny, Jacob B and Saniah:
