Today in Little Stars we visited the Gym! It was great to see where we will have our PE lessons once we are big school kids! We got to have a run, skip and gallop around the gym. These are all movements patterns children who are starting school need to practice and develop.
In group time we read ‘The Very Hungry Bear’, had a go with some gross motor activities that help make our bodies fit and strong and also made something special for Father’s Day (but shhhhhh it’s a secret!!!!)
We had a very busy session at Little Stars this week. First we went to watch the Nativity School Assembly. It was great to see the Year 1 students up on the stage!
Then we talked about the Olympics. We made our own Gold Medals and then printed the Olympic rings using paint and cylinders. We wrote our names on our medals and also on our Olympic rings poster. We used scissors to cut our Gold Medals out. We are going to keep practicing how to write our names and how to use scissors properly.
Today in Little Stars we visited our Campus Library. We saw lots of picture books and we all chose one to bring back to our Little Stars classroom.
We also drew self-portraits using a mirror to look at our own faces carefully and practised writing our names on the little whiteboards during group time.
We would like to welcome all our new Little Stars and their families!
We had such a wonderful first session on Friday last week and I am so proud of all the children and how they settled into the session!
It was a busy morning! One of the focuses we had in our first session was ordering the letters in our name using building blocks. Each block had a letter from our name on it and our task was to build our name.
I was also very proud of all the parents, it is a big event sending your child along to school or Little Stars for the first time and I want to thank all the parents that were able to stay for morning tea, hopefully you were able to make a few new connections with other families.
We can’t wait to see you all again on Friday!
