Everything that I share here is in use within my own kindergarten and home. Where the source of any material or ideas is known I will share it. It is never my intention to steal anyone ideas or copyright. If you feel something I have offered should be credited to another source please let me know, and I will do so. Where I have used ideas or text for sometime it is possible that I no longer remember where it came from. I may never have known as I have worked in this business for a long time.

I am always happy to learn. Ria.

Easter Activities

The Wheel of the Year is turning so quickly, Easter is upon us and off we go.
The Farmyard is showing lots of signs of life including the chickens and birds who keep on laying eggs. We try to keep the focus of the week away from the chocolate and onto the real eggs all around us.

Communication Language and Literacy: Our Focus books
Owl by DK
See how I grow: Chick DK  In years gone by we have had actually Eggs hatching and Chicks growing in our Playroom. Lots of interest and excitement ( as well as risk assessments!) But ths year we will just enjoy or own Pixies Den Chickens in the yard.
