Pancake TuesdayTuesday 25th February 2014

The Starfish children have been flipping pancakes in their dramatic play in home corner and have been busy making pancakes with play dough. Our emergent curriculum saw us making our own pancakes today.

We washed our hands and put on our cooking aprons before we began. The children helped measure the plain flour and milk placing them into the bowl, Mrs Lindsey’s cracked an egg in too. The children mixed the ingredients making sure there were no lumps. Mrs Lindsey scooped the batter into the hot fry pan to cook. We watched the cooking batter for bubbles popping before it was time to flip the pancake over. When our pancakes were ready, Mrs Lindsey put them onto a plate for us. Mrs Della Penna helped us choose if we wanted jam or lemon and sugar on our pancakes. They were very yummy!!!

Reflection JournalFinger painting with shaving cream

The Dolphin children loved the feeling of shaving cream finger paint on the white table. The children enjoyed spreading shaving cream all over their side of the table until it was completely covered. Suri giggled as she spread the shaving cream, “Look!” Suri held up her hands. The Rebekah and Eawan were very excited and squealed with delight over covering the whole table in shaving cream. Zak said it felt soft and Owen P said it was warm

The children used their palms of their hands to spread the finger paint and their fingers to make different patterns into the finger paint.

Going to midnight mass and breaking the ‘KokkinaAvga’ or red eggs in English. Effie talked about making ‘Tsoureki’, traditional Greek Easter bread. Arianna told the children in Greek she had been to see ‘Hristos’ or Jesus’ house! Effie helped the children boil and paint hard boiled eggs. They looked amazing! Thank you, Arianna and Effie for sharing Greek Easter with us.

Reflection JournalHappy Mother’s DayThursday 8th May 2014

Today we celebrated Mother’s Day at Preschool. The mummy’s were invited to join us for an hour during the session. When the Mummy’s arrived we played indoors. We showed them all the different activities we like to play with. The children and mums could also have a turn together at some special activities; hand print painting, joint painting at the easel and pasting. The children showed their Mum’s what to do when the pack up music started. Packing up took no time at all!!! We also invited our Mummy’s to come and dance with us to the ‘Wiggly Woo’, ‘Rock-a-bye your bear’ and ‘Fuzzy the Clown’. Some of the Mum’s did a fantastic job following the directions with us! We also sang our ‘Bumble Bee’ song, the Mummy’s enjoyed hearing us saying our names. We washed our hands and shared afternoon tea of scones with jam and cream, a cup of tea and some fruit. We concluded our special day with a story about how special Mummy’s are and presented them their gifts. The children were so excited to give their Mum’s their gifts, everyone came with a cuddle too. Thank you to our Mummy’s for joining us and we hope you have a special day on Sunday. Happy Mother’s Day !!
