Term 1 had lots of fun activities. We had Baking Friday once a month. We often played with textures and water and had fun on the playground. In Term 1 we also had a Valentine’s Day Picnic and visits from Nature’s Kids and the Easter Bunny!
Playing with shaving cream to learn about touch and textures
Playdough teaches us fine motor control and let’s be honest… it’s great fun!
Something for everyone on the playground… shady sandpit or running on the grass, or the tree house for fantasy games!
Baking Fridays are always fun. We learn about different tastes, how to follow instructions AND we get to eat our handiwork… YUM!
