Dear EY1 famailies,
We had a great second week back in EY1. On Monday during circle time we demonstrated our expressive language skills by sharing with the class what we did over the weekend, Thank you to those who discussed this with their children before school on Monday as this evident for some families during morning meeting.
In Art this week we had a lot of fun making masks with Ms Daisy.
On Thursday we celebrated Waikru, thank you to everyone for sending in flowers. We paid respect to all the teachers in the room and it was very lovely celebration.
Ms Kaitlin brought in Sea Monkey’s from home which inspired out first discussion on the needs of living things. It also support our numeracy skills as we needed to follow step by step instructions while also talking about our responsibility for living things. We learned the sign languages for living and non living things. It would be great if you talked about this at home and made connections to living things around you.
This children were also invited to participate in self portrait drawings as we had noticed changes in ourselves and others, many talking about how much they had grown over the holidays.
