A big warm welcome to our new families starting with us this term, also its lovely to see lots of familiar faces returning for another year in kindergarten. The new children have settled in really well and have made lots of new friends already.

We started straight back into our kindergarten routine on Tuesday with YMCA football session. The children did really well and their skills will improve each week with coach Jo choosing a player of the week each session.

After lunch we put on our coats and went outside to the infant playground to explore their Trim Trail.

Wednesday is our yoga and dance day. This week week started nice and easy with the story 'we're going on a bear hunt' a well known preschool story. The children copy stretches and moves demonstrated on the big screen (cosmic kids). Each week we will complete an different yoga story. Once children have settled properly we will follow a dance program too (gonoodle) which works in a similar way by following instructions on the big screen.

We also showed off our writing skills showing Hayley how well we can copy/shadow our names . Some fantastic efforts boys and girls.

Please can you check your child's tray at the end of each day and ensure ALL your child's clothing is clearly labelled with their name and class.

What a fabulous first week, we can't wait for the next :-)
