Today we had an exciting day at Little Stars as we visited the Father’s Day stall!
We all brought money in and could choose something to buy for our dads or someone special for Father’s Day. A big thank you to all the parent volunteers who were able to help with the stall, it was such a wonderful experience for our Little Stars to be involved in.
We wish all the Dads a very happy and special Father’s Day on Sunday!
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!
Today our Little Stars enjoyed joining in with our Campus Book Parade!
We all dressed up as different sheep from Mem Fox’s book ‘Where is the Green Sheep?’
Well done to all our Little Stars, or should we say ‘Little Sheep!’
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….
