Week of April 26th – 30th 2021

Good afternoon EY1 friends,

Woohoo! We’ve made it to the end of another week of remote learning! 

We’ve had a wonderful week of learning as we introduced our new unit of inquiry ‘Investigations’. The children have shown great enthusiasm and have begun to make many great connections to what makes a curious learner this week. They are gaining an understanding that not knowing and wondering, thinking, inquiring and asking questions is all part of the process of being a great learner! 

Circle time, small groups and now EY1 playtime continue to be a special and fun time for us all. It is helping us to stay connected to our friends and teachers and we’ve even had a few siblings come along and join in on the fun and support us with our learning this week. 

😄 FUN FRIDAY

Our Fun Friday was a lot of FUN with everyone wearing our animal T-shirts, sharing our name art and learning a new song.We reflected on some of our favourite Seesaw activities this week such as the Elephant toothpaste video and our feelings books where friends shared their thoughts and wonderful with others.

Thank you to those parents who joined us for the parent forum today. It was nice to see and chat to you. Thank you very much for your helpful suggestions on how we can keep improving the EY1 remote learning program to make it as fun and positive as we possibly can for the children.
