Kindy Annual Book Fair

A lovely sunny morning to be choosing books. Lots of great helper Mums on the day. Decisions, decisions. Which book should we get? Book fair: day 2.

 

The Kindy Book Fair was on recently and there were lots of helpers and lots of customers. Parents and children from the kindy get to choose books and buy them and a percentage of the money sold gets spent on new books for the Kindy library. Its a win win situation.

Puppet Show Fun

Puppet Show

We were very lucky to be treated to a puppet show at our kindergarten. An under the sea show for one group and a rainforest show for the other group. Many amazing animal puppets were introduced to the children. A happy and fun way for the children to learn about their environment.

This weeks activities.

There has been a lot going on at St Thomas this week. But the most exciting thing for the children is getting ready for Christmas. Paper Christmas trees have been cut and painting and decorating has begun.

Also this week, the children cooked muffins. Following the Recipe genre and learning how to follow steps. Hope they last the car trip home.
