Ready,Set,Kinder! Week 7

This week we read the story "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" which the children really enjoyed. Our activities were then based around a theme of healthy eating and included sorting healthy and "treat" foods, making a healthy food caterpillar, sequencing the story using picture cards and making a human body caterpillar, focusing on ordinal numbers.

Each day the children attend Ready, Set, Kinder! we spend 15-20 minutes sitting outside eating fruit and having a drink of water. It's great to see a wide variety of fruits and vegetables being eaten as this encourages the children to speak about the different foods they are eating. The preschoolers are certainly getting good at naming all the different types of apples!

We finished our sessions this week with songs such as Dr Knickerbocker & Shimmy Shake by the Wiggles, which saw the children really testing out their dancing skills!
