We all really enjoyed this week’s activities as the focus was all about turn taking, teamwork and our community.
Our preschool group did a fabulous job this week and made great efforts to remember to work as a team. They worked together in a memory game, made their own room painting and played a fun game of musical chairs with a twist!
The Woodlands group worked incredibly well together this week, and really enjoyed learning about our community. They paired up to complete puzzles and it was lovely to see them working together, and the pride when they had completed.
The number focus for Woodlands is numbers ‘3’ & ‘4’ and they loved recognising the numbers on balloons and then having the chance to pop the balloon.
NEW JOINERS AND LEAVERS
We are pleased to welcome Tayshaun to Diggers. We are pleased to welcome Nelema to the Discovery team. Nelema is an an undergraduate currently studying for a BA degree in Early Childhood Studies. Nelema will be with us every Monday and Wednesday until she completes her studies.
We are sad to say goodbye to LeeAnne who will be ending her apprenticeship with us next week. LeeAnne has been a valued member of the team and we wish her well for the future.
29 Feb – 4 March is National Book Week and we would like to invite a parent to come in each day (at 11.30) and read your child’s favourite story to their group. A love of books is such an important thing to promote and it will be lovely to get you involved (and I know the children will love it!). We would like to have one parent each day throughout that week so please do let us know if you have the time to spare.
4 March is World Book Day and the children are able to come into nursery dressed as a character from their favourite book. As with last year, please do not feel like you have to go and buy something as there are so many creative ways to dress them up without spending a penny.
We love books at Discovery so we had to get the staff involved in all the fun. We have decided to run a little competition. Each staff member was given a book, a jute bag and a couple of pounds and tasked with creating a spectacular story sack. The best story sack will win 50 pounds to spend on resources in their room. And, the parents will be the judges. Please keep an eye on our Facebook page, as that will be the easiest way to poll the scores. Voting will be on 4 March.
