In the Montessori classroom: children explore the diversity of culture, background and tradition and understand that diversity presents opportunities and new choices (EYLF Outcome 2.2)
During the week, we have been introducing the children to Australia. The children showed great interest in discovering this continent and have learned many things about Australia covering from national flag, land form, oceans surrounding Australia, and various kinds of Australian animals.
School Readiness: Children convey and construct messages with purpose and confidence, building on literacy skills (EYLF Outcome 5.2)
During the week, the children have been busy working on worksheets that help them in developing cognitive thinking skills as well as fine motor skills. They learned to utilized rulers to draw lines and hold scissors correctly to cut the right picture that match the word. They are also provided with ample opportunities to choose activities based on their own learning needs from the shelf.
Indoor and Outdoor activities: Children develop dispositions for learning such as curiosity, cooperation, confidence, creativity, commitment, enthusiasm, persistence and imagination (EYLF Outcome 4.1)
This week the children engaged in a number of activities indoors and outdoors. Indoors – Shirley was sitting with the children to demonstrate how to use the new stencils where the children can see the pattern as they draw onto the stencil using crayons and pencils for art and craft. Outdoors- this week has been pretty hot due to the heat wave. This has meant that the children have been participating in indoor activities that have been setup for them, instead. However, when the weather was nice and warm the children enjoyed the opportunity to play in the sandpit as well as the water activities. The children also enjoyed playing in the shade as they tried to keep cool.
Craft: children use the creative arts such as drawing, painting, and storytelling to express ideas and make meaning (EYLF Outcome 5.3)
This week, the children enjoyed art and craft where they decorated foam love hearts and beautiful butterflies and painted them ready to give them to someone they love. The children also made crabs using their handprints as well as sand. We also made puppets using recycled paper rolls, reused pieces of material and imagination.
Church: Bible Story- Jesus performed the first miracle in Cana.
We also prayed for the children who are leaving for the big school that Jesus will put them in good hands in their new
journey, and they will soon make good friends and enjoy learning together in the new environment.
