Hello EY1 Families!
We had a busy week with conferences! It was lovely to sit down with all of our EY1 families and spend some time getting to know you. We look forward to helping support you this year!
We also spent time reading/telling/acting out lots of stories. We encourage all families to embrace literacy at home in as many ways as possible! We also got a change to play with some of the class puppets ourselves and act out our own stories.
We had visitors all the way from South Africa named Quadasi and Mac. We enjoyed hearing a different language and also dancing to the music!
We took time to sort materials by colour. We noticed that there were many different shades of different shapes. We enjoyed developing out math skills by naming and categorizing objects.
We have had very calming and gentile outside play time. We get the opportunity to work on our fine and gross motor skills when we embrace play with natural materials.
This week in EY1 we are working on developing our understanding of ourselves even deeper than before. We have been asking questions about what we can do and where we are from. Please make sure that you take time to ask these questions at home with your children!
For example NiNi can “jump up down” and JiaJia can “play with teacher and Third”. These are words from them!
