Kidz Kindy Weekly Newsletter 21 July

Kia Ora Kidz Kindy Whanau

A quote attributed to Albert Einstein states ‘If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.’ Some of our children were busy looking through our fairy tale books last week. They were excited to tell each other what they knew about the stories, so this week our learning has focused on fairy tales, specifically Little Red Riding Hood.

We have practiced our fine motor (finger) skills by making shoe boxes into mini story stages. Our first step was to paint green onto the base and then the sides blue.The next step was to roll paper into cylinders to represent trees, selotape them shut then fringe cut the base and glue them to the base.. The third day we used squares and triangle shapes to create cottages, which we glued to the walls. Voila, our story boxes were complete.

We have also created lots of other art too: collage, glass painting, using big brushes, water colours, cotton buds, fingers and shaving cream.

Our tamariki have also enjoyed acting out the Litte Red Riding Hood story with props and have taken this interest outside, collecting flowers ‘to take to Grandma’

Dancing to music outside has been popular, as have our tricycles, slide and swings.

Unfortunately, quite a few of our families are falling ill with coughs and colds or (in some cases) vomiting and diarrhoea. Please keep your child home from Kindy if they are ill, 48 hours from the last event in the case of vomiting and diarrhoea. This helps to speed their recovery and prevent the spread of illness to others.

This week we farewell Olivia and Carson to school. Enjoy your school days!

Ka kite anō au i a korua.

From your teaching team this week,

Cynny, Amy, Cathy, Meeri and Mel.
