Special Guest - Yoga!

This week we had a very special guest join us. Ms Lauren's sister, Ms Rienna came all the way from Australia to teach us some special yoga poses. We did downward dog, warrior, cobra, crocodile, bear and even forward folds. Ms Rienna played a game with us where she let us choose 2 of our favourite yoga poses to link together and then we got to show our friends. We had so much fun! Thanks Ms Rienna :)

Concert Rehearsal

The children were very excited to have their dress rehearsal for the Winter Concert. They rehearsed each song and practiced changing into their costumes. They also ran through the play, Stick Man. The children’s energies were amazing and the preschool was buzzing with adrenalin. We can’t wait until the concert!

The children have been learning about celebrations around the world. We learnt about Christmas and Santa and discussed our own family traditions. We also explored what Hanukkah is. The children read a story about Hanukkah lights and we made a star of David. Some of our children who celebrate Hanukkah taught us about a dreidel.

Winter Concert!

With our Winter Concert less than a week and a half away we have transformed our classroom into a stage. The children have been busy rehearsing their ballet and hip hop routines. We have been working on our Stick Man play as well. The children have learnt their lines and are now in the process of creating their own props for the play. They have made additional characters and are now painting Stick Mans house. We are all working together as a team to complete this big task. We can't wait to see you at our concert!
