A very warm welcome to all of our new Little Stars and their families. We had our first session last Friday and what a busy morning it was!! We sang our ‘Good morning’ song, visited the early years classrooms in the Bartram building, played on the playground, listened to a story and had the opportunity to play with and make new friends. We were so impressed with how well the children all settled into the Little stars room and we are looking forward to seeing you all again on Friday!
During Term 3, the Little Stars visited many different places around our Campus and school. Here are some of the places we have visited so far….
The Performing Arts Centre
Nativity front office
Our Nativity Parish Church
A very big welcome to all of our new ‘Little Stars’ and their families. Our first two sessions have been fun and full of opportunities to make friends, learn new routines and rules and get to know more about our Nativity school.
We look forward to sharing more of our Little stars journey with you throughout the term!
Little Stars is back this term beginning this Friday (July 25th). We look forward to welcoming our new ‘Little stars’ and getting to know the children and their families this term. The door will be open from 8.45am. We are very excited to see you all on Friday!
‘Little Stars’ will be up and running again in Terms 3 and 4 for those children beginning in Reception in 2015. A note will go home to parents/caregivers at a later date, informing you of our information session that will be held in Term 2. We look forward to meeting all of our new ‘Little stars’ and their families later in the year!
Everyone in Little stars was keen to share what they had been up to in the holidays! We all had an opportunity to share to a small group what we most enjoyed doing in the holidays. Camping, going to the movies, playing with brothers and sisters, catching crabs and going to playgrounds were just a few of the fun things we heard about during our first session of Little Stars for Term 4.
Here we are painting our holiday pictures!
We have been reading the story of ‘Goldilocks and the three bears’. Our task last week was to chose one of the bears to make: Baby bear, Mummy bear or Daddy bear. We had to cut two circles to make the head and the body. We used textas and crayons to add detail to our bears. We have been using our oral language skills to describe and compare the different characteristics of the three bears in the story.
In Week 6, we worked in small groups to play:
- The feely bag game– Each child chose something from the feely bag that they had to describe to the group. They had to give 3 clues about their object. The group was encouraged to ask questions about the object to help them work out what it was.
- The shopping game– Each person/pair was given a shopping list that they had to share/read to the others in their group. The children had to take turns to turn over a shopping item and could add it to their shopping trolley if it was on their list. It was great to hear the discussions throughout this game- lots of positive language was being used, each person was aware of what someone else had on their list and was helping them out when they found an item that wasn’t on their list and there was a lot referring back to shopping lists, double checking what was on it and talking about items they have in their own homes.
In Week 4, we read a story about ‘The Rainbow Fish’. We discovered that the rainbow fish was happiest when he shared his shiny scales with others. Sharing with others and making new friends helps us to be happy! Some of us chose to make our own rainbow fish in morning activities…..
