The children have been working very hard the last few weeks to create many decorations for our tree. We have made snowmen, bells, baubles, stars and even candles. Ms Ingrid bought us some decorations from the store so we added those to our tree. Doesn't our tree look great!

On Tuesday we had a special guest come visit us! Mr John has been a long anticipated special guest from the Summer. We are very grateful he could find some spare time to come play guitar with us! Mr John sang Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star with us, as well as Old McDonald and Mr Sun. The children had a great time listening and singing along with him. Mr John also showed us how to pluck the strings on the guitar and taught us why it has a whole in it and why you have to use just your fingers to pluck the strings. The children were all very excited to get to use a guitar, for some it was the first time they had ever seen the instrument! Thanks Mr John for a fantastic lesson!

The children have been very excited to rewrite Julia Donaldson’s
We have been using everyone’s ideas to create an adapted version that fits the children’s visions of Stick Man’s adventures. The children also wanted to create a Stick Man and a Stick Lady Love, so we used as many art materials as we could find. The children did an amazing job and through this experience were able to bring their ideas to life! We focused on drawing using observational techniques and then developing our fine motor skills to colour and glue materials onto our Stick Man and Stick Lady Love. Stick Man.
