This month, we have welcomed a lot of new faces into the kindergarten and everyone has made a lot of new friends! It has been lovely to see our Petit Panda family grow and everyone settle in so fast!
The theme for the month of September was ‘all about me’, this allowed us to get to know each other and get to know ourselves a little bit better. We started the topic with our body parts and what we look like, we had lots of fun making our faces for the classroom and learning about what we look like in both English and Chinese.
Once we had got to know ourselves a little bit more, we learned about our families, we looked at photos and talked about them. The children loved talking and hearing about their families!
We have been practicing the ‘Skeleton dance’ in the kindergarten as part of our topic for the body!. Please, see the song here
We have also started doing the phonics with the older children in order for them to learn and recognise the sound of the letters in English. This month we have been focusing on A, B and C. Please, see the song here
We have started our new topic for October! This month we will be looking at a variety of famous painters! We will be doing lots of exciting activities based on art and using lots of different techniques. We will also try to express ourselves through art and interpretation of paintings. Our baby group will also be experimenting with different techniques and textures in their activities!
As Autumn is here, we will also be doing some Autumn projects in the kinder this week and next week! We would like to encourage the parents to help their children collect some autumn leaves for our activities. The children will love finding leaves and doing the activities with those that they have been collecting
We will be ending October with another celebration; Halloween!
