The Caterpillar and Butterfly children enjoyed craft outdoors this morning. The children placed cellophane onto the contact to make baubles by using their fine motor skills to pick up and stick it onto the contact whilst identifying the colours. It became a little tricky at times with fingers getting stuck to the paper but it was fun to make. ...

Our practice of setting up areas of play that is focussed on children’s interest enable smaller groups to be able to connect and have meaningful conversations. This shared interest encourages children to be able to more easily establish the life skill of making friends. It’s very nice to see them so engaged. #friends ...

Today the Caterpillars at our Sherridon Cr Centre joined their educators to construct and decorate our Christmas tree for our room. We listened to "A wiggly wiggly Christmas" as we danced around the tree using our hand eye coordination to place red and gold baubles on the branches of our tree. We noticed how some baubles were sparkly while others were shiny and smooth using our fingers to feel the different textures.
We wrapped tinsel around and around the tree followed by sparkly star lights. The final touch was putting our beautiful sparkly gold star on the very top of our beautiful masterpiece!!!

Simple provocation for the Adventure group. This will help the children enhance their visual perception and imagination as they get creative to form different shapes using the shape cards provided as a guide. This will also help develop early numeracy when the children begin to count and measure the sticks with mathematical equipment. Can’t wait to see how the children respond to this!

Thanks, Miss Mimi

The butterflies Children at our Sherridon Crescent centre created the Angels with the use of some paper plates and painted them using their fine motor skills. They have also made some snowflakes with paddle pop sticks. The activity required them to pinch some silver coloured glitter to decorate it which plays an important role in enhancing their eye hand coordination skills. ...

The children participated in a gift wrapping pretend play to strengthen their fine motor skills. Cutting, measuring and taping, all incorporate numbers, art and motor practices through this sort of play.

We have been collecting recycables such as different sized cardboard boxes to wrap with some wrapping paper. The children were able to express themselves through this sort of play as they have the freedom to use materials. The children also enjoyed navigating the shape of the different recycables. We couldn’t wait to display our wrapped boxes underneath our tree.

Wonderful gift wrapping Excercise- what a great start!

Spring has started at Sherridon and it's a great time to plant. The children were very excited to start something that they will see grow over the next couple of months. Gardening with children is a great way to teach environmental awareness by exploring the wonders of nature". ...

The Adventure children took action to participate in a social and sustainable experience. Along with Adventure, we had a special parent visit to present a brief lesson on how to make wipes. The parent engaged in a large group discussion and each child was able to contribute to this experience with confidence. The children learnt to demonstrate independence and competence in personal hygiene and this was evident when the children began wiping their hands and face once the wipes were ready for use. This will help the children play an active role in contributing to a sustainable future. We love the wipes already! Thank you to the parent who took the time to visit and teach the Adventure class about sustainability. ...

This morning a group of children worked collaboratively with their educator to brainstorm some science experiments they have expressed curiosity about.. they shared ideas, questions and discussion about things they wanted to know more about and also enjoyed experimenting some mathematical concepts using water.... Later in the afternoon they created a volcano which will be used to explore and learn about how they erupt! How exciting! ...
