emu updates

This week our Emu friends have loved learning all about the life cycle of cicadas after finding these interesting creatures shells in the playground. We listened to information books about cicadas and learnt that they like the hot weather, the boy cicadas sing songs to the girl cicadas, and some cicadas live under the ground for seventeen years! We created a cicada and bug play area in the Emu room that the children have been enjoying investigating. Next week we are excited to paint and decorate the cicada shells we have been collecting!

We have also been busy enjoying a range of Christmas crafts and activities. We painted Christmas wreaths and candy canes, created Christmas trees, and helped to begin to decorate the Emu room ready for Christmas time.

Reminder: The preschool Christmas concert is Wednesday, December 6. We hope to see you all there!

Love from Miss Jess and Miss Wendy xoxo
