News from the Pips room:

During the month of April, the Pips have been very busy exploring nature play. The pips have been interacting with nature on a daily basis in the mornings and afternoons. Together with the Buds and Poppies, we have gone on a nature walk in our big yard. During our exploration, we have discovered little creatures that live amongst our gardens. On one of our many walks, we have discovered a family of frogs, the children where very fascinated and excited to see the little frogs. The pips have also been collecting natural items from our gardens to create artwork, we have enjoyed painting and creating art.  -Miss Steph Miss Rupinder and Miss Shy 

News from the Buds room:

It has been lovely to see the children settle with Miss Maria as the lead educator of the room. We have been busy making the most of the warm weather every morning, the children have been looking closely at the natural environment around us, keeping a close eye out for the wildlife; such as cane toads, butterflies, spiders and birds. The children have had lots of fun making cards for Easter and enjoying Easter experiences. Moving on in May we will be developing artwork as well as documenting any changes that we notice outdoors during our morning's exportation of the garden. We would like to welcome our new friend Elianna to our room and we would like to wish everyone a Happy Birthday for the month of April. - Miss Maria, Miss Alana, Miss Emma

News from the Poppies room:

Welcome to another month with the Poppies, and what a different month it has been, As many of our friends have been away, we have spent time with the Buds, building on our social interactions as well as continuing our learning. We have focused on good hygiene practices, especially hand washing throughout the day. We shared our love of the outdoors with the younger children, helping find bugs and wildlife. Celebrating Easter was very different, however, we enjoyed making Easter bonnets, utilizing our creative skills and imaginations. As things settle down, we have returned to our room where we will continue on our learning. Numbers, colours, letters are a focus, building a base for school readiness. Miss Ebony has returned and we welcome her back, along with our new friend Eliezer. Let's look forward to what's ahead as we continue to grow and develop. - Miss Sally, Miss Rupinder, Miss Ebony
