Dear Kindy Families,
What a busy term we have had! Throughout the term there has been so many rich learning moments and growth from all of our children in our Kindy group. This term in the Kindy room we have had the transition of Miss Brooke going on maternity leave and myself beginning which has been an adjustment for the children and families. I am looking forward to being part of your children’s lives and already have the feeling that our room is now settling, with the children displaying a sense of security and trust.
Thanking all the families that have helped make my transition into Just Kids a welcoming one.
This term we have welcomed both Emmanuel and Sebastian into our room. Also welcome back to our friend Matilda!
Our Term 3 goals were building relationships – introducing myself into the children’s environment and talking about what children might do or expect from me. The main purpose was to find out what interests your children have so I can acknowledge their interests in my planning to enable them to be happy and confident learners.
What’s new for Term 4
Exploring and engaging with literacy in personally meaningful ways – Kindy’s main focus is going to be on different text purposes and meanings. I would like to encourage all our Kindy children to bring in their favourite book, whether that maybe a story or an information book. We are currently working on the text ‘wombat Stew’, exploring the rhymes and patterns in children’s context that are relevant to Kindy children. Attached is a useful hyperlink showing how important literacy is in the early years. https://raisingchildren.net.au/preschoolers/play-learning/literacy-reading-stories/developing-literacy
Swimming is to commence from the beginning of term 4, this will take place on Tuesday’s, Wednesday’s and Thursday mornings from the 8th October 2019.
