Cultural Celebration!

Today the children had a wonderful time at our cultural celebration at preschool. We shared food from our diverse ethnic backgrounds and many dressed up in their traditional outfits. Some children brought treasures from their home countries such as books, art and ornaments. We also watched a video of our student teacher doing Nepalese dance. Our continent of the past month was Asia so today’s cultural sharing brought this focus to life. We had Chinese dumplings, won tons, spring rolls, chicken from Philippines, popcorn, lolly cake, dip and carrots and rice from Nepal for our shared lunch. Thanks to the parents and everyone for supporting our cultural celebration.

Kindy Rock

Today the children had a wonderful time at our special music and movement session. Celeste and Judi from Kindy Rock lead the children in singing and dancing and introduced the children to a variety of musical ideas. The children were able to be creative and expressive through experiencing a variety of action songs as well as exploring the beat, rhythm, pitch and tempo whilst using some musical instruments. The children were developing confidence in expressing themselves through music, song and dance. The children were clearly enjoying themselves as they fully participated in the session.
The preschool also received a Kindy Rock CD so we will be able to revisit these songs and dances, supporting the children’s interests and skills in music and movement.
