F3 children were excited about the prospect of mums and dads joining us in the class and started by making a list in advance, of the things they would like to do and show their parents. Staying true to the list we made rainbow slime and playdough and had a selection of beads available to make necklaces. Teachers were happy to model our morning routines as well to show how we support our curriculum goals through play and the set-up of the classroom environment. Parents saw mark making, writing and maths opportunities all being independently accessed by their children, as well as creative opportunities and a whole lot of FUN!! A big thanks to all who could join us and for joining in with the play. Here are some of the things parents said about the morning,
- “I wish I could stay all day”.
- “Now I can see why she loves school so much”
- “I’m so happy he has a good time”
- “I’m so happy to see who his friends are”
We showed how children are developing confidence and independence in their self-care by accessing our free flow snack bar and the Early Learning Centre (ELC) for more collaborative opportunities with children from other classes.
