The afternoon children and Lee Corlett



This week Lee brought along some planks, they were narrow and close to the ground. The children had to walk along them frontwards , sideways and backwards. To add another challenge Lee got us to crawl along the planks, this was a much more difficult task ( I know because I tried). The reason it is more difficult is because our centre of gravity changes. This is a great way keep your brain active. Lee also took the children through some challenges with hurdles, using the monkey bars and the climbing wall. Having Lee in kindergarten always leaves us a new challenge and is fun too.If you wondering just what we get up to with Lee we invite you to stay and join in sometime. Keep an eye on the noticeboard for when he will be with us again.

Mary had a little Lamb"



It's true, I did and this week at kindergarten we all got to have a little lamb for a while, when one of our families brought in a one day old lamb for us all to enjoy. Some children got turns to feed her with a bottle and everyone who wanted to got a chance to pet "Honey Lamb". We were all amused by her antics and it was fantastic watching children practice using gentle hands and voices around her. For some of the children this was a first time experience, being up so close to a lamb which made them feel a little unsure but as they took time to sit and watch a while first they soon were coming up close for a chance to pat "Honey Lamb". We all hope "Honey Lamb " comes back for a visit soon.
