The boys and girls were very excited to tell the teachers about what they got up to over the holidays and drew pictures in the Christmas floorbook of their new toys. Cody drew his brand new quad bike with his name on it and said he also helped his mum to cook Christmas dinner. Matthew drew a picture of the Science centre which he visited during the holidays where he learned all about planet earth and the moon. Stellan drew a fantastic T-Rex with lots of spikes and it roars when you move his arm. The boys and girls were fab at writing their names and we could tell that they have been practicing during the holidays.
Snack was bagels with cream cheese or butter, cucumber and banana with a drink of milk or water. The children were very hungry today and it was a popular snack.
We had lots of experiences on the floor to choose from such as popoids, doll's house, investigation materials, water and pirate ships, magnetic shapes, connecting families and puppets.
At get together time we all said what our favourite Christmas present was and then we sang the days of the week song. Leon identified that it was Monday and Ros told us it was January. We discussed how some new children will be starting the nursery and we will have to be kind and helpful towards them. We discussed the Golden rules and then played duck duck goose only we changed it to earth earth moon as Matthew had spoke about this.
At reflection time Ruari told us he learned how to build using the popoids and had to push them together and Oscar was playing in the house corner and sharing the toys.
Tomorrow is Elijah's turn for show and tell.
