Phew! There’s so much to do in Kindy Blue!
We have had a busy, happy, teary, smiley, giggly, fun start to our Kindy year!
We have been busy finding out about each other and sharing lots of things about ourselves too.
Thanks to our families who helped us bring our baby photos to school for our Guess The Baby session!
We tried to guess which of us matched the baby photos and then we would tell everyone something about ourselves.
How amazing that God knew us before we were even born! He gave us our Mums and Dads and He is so happy to see us enjoy our days at Kindy now!
We have been thinking about how much we have grown since we were babies and how much we can now do now that we couldn’t do before.
Things like holding drawing tools well to be able to draw on wooden stencils that we think look like us…
…then we put all of our stencils together to make a model that shows all of us learning and playing together at St Emilies school!
We can draw and paint pictures of ourselves too. It might look easy but you need to look carefully at yourself in the mirror and try to draw what you see on the paper…there’s lots of information to think about. Then you have to learn how to use water colour paints and brushes to bring the drawings to life. It all takes lots of good listening, watching, thinking and concentration and SUPER BRAINPOWER!
We have also been learning how to get on with others, practising friendly talking and behaviour with other children, how to look, listen and think at mat time and activity times, how to be patient and wait our turn and how to do things for ourselves.
We are learning to be a member of our class, the Kindy year group, our Early Childhood block and our school.
It takes a long time to grow a St Emilies’ child but we’ve set out on the right foot!
It makes our hearts grow when we can help others to do a job…
…or we take the hand of someone who is feeling alone and put a smile on both of our faces!
