bush babies updates

It was pyjama week at Kindy this week and it was lovely to see our Bush Babies looking so cute in their pyjamas.

With the beautiful weather we had this week the Bush Babies got to enjoy the sunshine with lots of outdoor exploration. The children spent time exploring the outdoor environment, finding things that had fallen from the trees. This was a great opportunity to foster the children's common interest in nature and also to extend on their language development by naming the objects as we looked and explored them.

We were very lucky to have a friendly kookaburra sit and watch us one afternoon. The children were very excited to see him sitting so close. We sang 'Kookaburra sits in the old gumtree' as Miss Indi showed the children how to make kookaburra noises. It's great to see the children so curious about their environment.

During outdoor play the children loved engaging in gross motor activities. Climbing on the obstacle course and riding the bikes were very popular. As were ball games. Kicking the ball between Educator and children was a great opportunity to further develop the children's developing gross motor skills and strengths.

Overall a wonderful week.
