last few months in the Early Years Room, it has been a busy,
fun and productive time for both the children and educators.
It has been such excitement observing the children as they
share their creative imaginations through play, learning and
craft as well as enhancing their social skills through
interacting with others and communicating both verbally and
non-verbally while engaging in play.
these past few months we have also joined in celebrating
Waitangi Day, St Patrick's Day, Easter, Earth Day, Anzac
Day, Super Hero Day and Our Special Mother's Day. We have
also continued our learning of identifying our numbers,
colours and shapes, counting from 1 to 20, children learning
to say their full (First and Last) names, and also trying to
identify their names and encouraging children to share their
thoughts and ideas during group discussions.
children's interests have been role playing in home corner,
sensory play with play dough, sand and water play, exploring
dinosaurs and animals, picnic and cafe play, as well as
enhancing our physical skills during outdoor play.
