Happy Friday Everyone!
PLEASE READ WHOLE POST! IMPORTANT INFORMATION AT THE BOTTOM!
This week was full of new experiences at Preschool! We had tons of fun splashing our way through the first big rainfall, taking out our new camping gear and seeing our new science experiments!
This week in the Unicorn room was learning about grains, seeds, beans, corn and well HARVESTING! We spent the week learning about seeds and corn growing into food that we eat! We weighed our grains, used grains for art and we even used beans in our SCIENCE EXPERIMENT !
Jumping Beans is what we did for science this Thursday and it was fun! We watched as our beans sunk to the bottom of our jar and then we watched as they began to make their way to the top! This taught us about floating and sinking, and the different types of beans we used.
Orca 4's Classroom is starting a fun under the sea project with the kids. This week was SHARKS! Lots of fun and excitement under the sea! Shark songs, shark water bins... SHARKS GALL-ORE!
We would like to remind all of our families of a few up coming events!
Next week ( OCTOBER 18, 11 am -2:45) the 4 year old classes in both ORCA AM/PM and UNI 4's will be heading out to the Richmond Country Farms for pumpkin patch fun ! We will need our friends to arrive at 11 am SHARP as we are on a tight schedule. The bus is leaving at 11:30 AM. We will all be meeting up in the Douglas Park Lounge
- Please make sure children have an early lunch. The children will be given a snack at the pumpkin patch but it wont be until after our pumpkin patch fun so they will need to be fuelled before hand!
- Children should use the bathroom before drop off. We will be on the bus for a while and we don't want any accidents!
- Please make sure the children are dressed appropriately for the weather. We will be outside for a long period of time!
- Children will need pinnies on when entering the lounge
- There will be NO morning classes for these groups on the 18th
The 3 year old classes will NOT be going to a pumpkin patch but we will be visiting our very own pumpkin patch here at Douglas Park! We will have a fun pumpkin patch for the children set up and the children will get to explore and play all during classroom hours ! The children will get to choose their very own pumpkins as well! THIS WILL BE HAPPENING DURING PRESCHOOL HOURS AND ON OCTOBER 24TH SO ALL 3 YEAR OLD CLASSES IN BOTH ORCA AND UNI CLASSROOMS CAN JOIN IN!
