Welcome to another great day in RMP. Here is our learning for the day:
Come Read With Me
The children are now in the routine of reading after they have unpacked their bags each morning. There have also been some new reading activities introduced this week. Thank you to the parents who have joined in with the children and helped them with leaning the games.
Today we talked about patterns and the children were asked if they could see any patterns in the classroom and in the yard.
Archie: Patterns can go red, yellow, red, yellow…
Zara: I see patterns on the number line, the numbers are patterns.
Olivia: There is a dark blue and light blue pattern on the class assistant names.
Ellara: A pattern is yellow, pink, yellow, pink.
Zachary: My jacket has a pattern on it, it is black and white.
Charlotte: There is a pattern on the bottom of my shoe.
The children were very busy this afternoon as they played with their peers.
Welcome to wonderful Wednesday everyone, here is our learning for the day:
The book shared today was called Frida and Bear by Anthony Browne.
Celebrate the power of the imagination with this inspiring picture book, a collaboration between the multi-award winning former Children’s Laureate Anthony Browne and the Danish illustrator Hanne Bartholin. Frida and Bear both love to draw – but what? First Frida draws a shape, then Bear turns it into a picture.
This morning the children were adding words to their books.. The lesson began with thinking about some of the letters we have learnt so far and looking at the letters in student names.
Zachary reads some of his new book.
Aarav started a new book today.
The Snake by Olivia
The scary snake.
The scary snake climbs up the tree.
The scary snake scares someone.
The scary snake swims with the fish.
The children sorted shapes into property hoops today.
The children were eager to share their family’s story of where their family has come from.
Alexis : My grandmother is form the Phillipines.
Zara: Where is Cambodia and Laos on the map?
Charlotte: My nonna is from Italy.
The children explored atlases and discovered countries, bushfires, animals, flags and words!
The children continued to make their books today. Some children started a new book. Some used ideas from the author Eric Carle and decided to write about an animal character.
Alexis continued her book with a different story on each page.
Zara found a quiet space to make her book.
Ellara, Charlotte and Alyssa all read there book to the teacher today.
The children investigated objects and sorted them according to a property today. Some children even sorted objects according to their purpose or use.
Shared Reading and Religion
The children listened to the story of Jesus’ Temptation in the Desert this afternoon; a story that fits well with the season of Lent.
Zara said that she found it hard to learn to ride her bike without training wheels but she kept on trying just like Jesus and the Click Beetle (Eric Carle’s story) and she finally did it because she kept on trying and did not give up. Here is an online story if you wish to share it with your child tonight.
