Fire Safety Emergency Drill practice

Building Awareness and Knowledge: Fire drills raise awareness about fire safety and educate children about potential fire hazards and preventive measures. Children learn about the importance of fire safety practices, such as keeping exits clear, reporting hazards, and following evacuation protocols. This increased knowledge can contribute to a safer environment overall.

Familiarity with Fire Safety Equipment: Fire drills provide an opportunity for children to become familiar with fire safety equipment such as fire alarms, extinguishers, and emergency exits. This familiarity helps individuals understand how to operate the equipment correctly and effectively when faced with a real fire emergency.

Evacuation Skills: Fire drills improve evacuation skills and response times. Children learn the fastest and safest routes to exit a building, locate emergency exits, and navigate through designated evacuation paths. Regular drills enhance individuals' ability to respond quickly and calmly, reducing panic and chaos during an actual fire.

Group time, Reading Time

Language Development: Reading exposes children to a wide range of vocabulary, sentence structures, and language patterns. It helps them expand their vocabulary, improve grammar, and enhance their overall communication skills.

Cognitive Development: Reading stimulates critical thinking and enhances cognitive abilities. It encourages children to analyze, interpret, and make connections between different ideas and concepts. It also promotes problem-solving skills and logical reasoning.

Imagination and Creativity: Reading fiction and imaginative stories allows children to enter new worlds and explore diverse characters and settings. It fuels their imagination, encourages creative thinking, and helps them develop a broader perspective of the world around them.

Knowledge and Information: Reading non-fiction books, encyclopedias, and educational materials exposes children to a wealth of knowledge and information. They learn about various subjects, such as history, science, geography, and more, expanding their understanding of the world.

Empathy and Social Skills: Reading stories about different cultures, experiences, and emotions helps children develop empathy and understanding for others. It exposes them to different perspectives, promotes tolerance, and enhances their social skills.

Concentration and Focus: Reading requires concentration and focus, especially when reading longer books or complex texts. Regular reading helps children improve their attention span and develop the ability to concentrate on tasks for extended periods.

Stick Yarning
NAIDOC Week celebration
For our Elder

In Aboriginal culture, stick yarning refers to a traditional method of communication and storytelling. It involves using sticks, sometimes decorated with symbols or markings, to represent people, animals, or objects, which are then arranged and moved around on the ground to convey a story or a message.
Stick yarning is an ancient practice that has been passed down through generations within Aboriginal communities in Australia. It serves as a way to preserve and share knowledge, history, and cultural teachings. Through the arrangement and movement of the sticks, complex narratives and connections are communicated, often accompanied by oral storytelling or singing.
The sticks used in stick yarning can vary in size, shape, and material, depending on the region and the purpose of the storytelling. They may be plain or intricately decorated with carvings, paintings, or natural pigments. Each stick may represent a different element of the story, such as people, animals, landmarks, or events, and their positioning and interactions convey the relationships and dynamics within the narrative.
Stick yarning is not only a means of passing on cultural knowledge but also a way to strengthen community bonds and engage in intergenerational learning. It allows for interactive and participatory storytelling experiences, where listeners can ask questions, offer interpretations, and contribute their own knowledge to the narrative.
Aboriginal cultures are diverse, and stick yarning practices may vary among different communities and regions. The specific meanings, techniques, and traditions associated with stick yarning can differ significantly depending on the cultural context and the knowledge passed down within each community

Rainbow Serpent Snake
We watched Rainbow Serpent snake story and we made rainbow serpent snake using loose part.

The Rainbow Serpent is a creator god and the most important figure in Aboriginal Mythology. There are many different stories told of the Rainbow Serpent, which are passed down from generation to generation. These stories tell of how the Rainbow Serpent shaped the earth through its movements. According to myth, the Serpent was responsible for giving life and blessing nature, but also for judging wrongdoing and issuing punishment.

Mandala art
Mandala art on recycled materials ( take away containers)

Creativity and Self-Expression: Mandala art allows children to express their creativity by designing and coloring intricate patterns. It encourages them to explore their imagination and experiment with different colors, shapes, and designs.
Focus and Concentration: Creating mandalas requires concentration and focus, as children need to pay attention to details while coloring or drawing. This helps improve their ability to concentrate and enhances their attention span.
Relaxation and Stress Relief: Coloring or drawing mandalas can be a calming and soothing activity for kids. It promotes relaxation and helps them unwind after a long day. The repetitive patterns and rhythmic motions involved in creating mandalas can have a meditative effect, reducing stress and anxiety.
Fine Motor Skills Development: Mandala art involves using fine motor skills, such as holding and manipulating coloring tools, precision coloring, and drawing intricate details. Practicing these skills can improve hand-eye coordination and dexterity in children.
Spatial Awareness and Geometry: Mandalas are often symmetrical and geometric in nature. Creating and coloring them can help children develop an understanding of spatial relationships, symmetry, and basic geometric concepts.
Self-Confidence and Self-Esteem: Completing a mandala artwork can give children a sense of accomplishment and boost their self-confidence. It encourages them to take pride in their creations and develop a positive self-image.
Emotional Expression and Therapy: Mandala art can serve as a means of emotional expression for children. They can use colors and designs to convey their emotions or inner thoughts. Additionally, mandala coloring is often used as an art therapy technique to help children manage their emotions, reduce stress, and improve their overall well-being.
Cultural Appreciation: Mandalas have roots in various cultures, such as Tibetan, Hindu, and Native American traditions. Introducing children to different cultural symbols and art forms through mandala art can foster cultural appreciation

Master K and Master S were playing together with Hula Hoop and master K added hula hoop near tyre and started playing Obstacles course and asked me, look Kaki kabu playing. Children setting up their own outdoor play areas can be a valuable and empowering experience. Allowing children to take the lead in creating their play space fosters creativity, problem-solving skills, and a sense of ownership over their environment.

World Bee day. 🐝🐝🐝
We gifted 🌼🌸🌺 flowers pot to Families ( child through mum ) to make Bee friendly flowers Garden. Attracted these hard working pollinators to your garden by making Bee friendly flowers Garden.

Chrysanthemums are pollinator-friendly plants and can attract bees and other beneficial insects to the garden. Bees are particularly attracted to the bright, showy flowers of chrysanthemums, and their visits can help to increase pollination and fruit set in nearby plants.

National Road Safety Week
Road signs Scavenger hunt

Safety : Road signs provide essential information and warnings to pedestrians and drivers. When children learn road signs at a young age, they become familiar with the meaning of different signs, enabling them to navigate and interact with traffic safely. This knowledge can help prevent accidents and promote road safety.

Awareness: Understanding road signs cultivates a sense of awareness about the surroundings and potential hazards. Children who learn road signs early on develop a habit of scanning their environment for signs, signals, and markings. This heightened awareness can enhance their ability to identify and respond appropriately to different traffic situations when they grow older.

Cognitive Development: Learning road signs involves understanding and interpreting visual symbols and their meanings. This process engages cognitive skills such as observation, recognition, memory, and problem-solving. By practicing these skills, children enhance their cognitive development, visual literacy, and ability to process and understand various signs and symbols.
Language and Communication Skills: Road signs often include words or symbols that convey specific meanings. Learning road signs helps children develop their vocabulary

Independent Mobility: Proficiency in road signs empowers children to become more independent in their mobility. Whether walking, biking, or eventually driving, knowing road signs enables them to make informed decisions about crossing roads, understanding speed limits, and following directions. This independence fosters confidence and self-reliance while promoting responsible behavior.
