School Stories: A Real game!


Three little girls playing with

REAL TOYS.

This was during my morning Before School Care shift.

They started playing at 7.30 am

and could not stop playing when they had to go to their classes

at 8.30 am.

It was so good to see these girls playing together.

While they were playing one was watching “My little Pony”

on an iPad

The three older children were playing

“Minecraft” on the Play station.

It was cold and miserable outside.

School stories: Pompoms and bunnies


End of the first term. It was a good term. Lots of highlights. Before school is expanding day by day. After school not that many children as last year. We did a lot of swimming every afternoon while we could.

We made some pompoms.

We were supposed to make bunnies with them but

there wasn’t enough time to finish it off.

At the end, we had some colourful pompoms.

The big pompom was halfway successful.

It was a huge struggle to cut and tie it up.

Even the principal took a go at cutting through the string!

We also used toilet rolls to create

Bunnies

Rockets.

One created a tree with owls perching on the branches.

No photo, sorry! I forgot to take one.

Hope all of you have a good easter weekend!

School Stories: Skink and bicycles


Tuesday morning two children (brother and sister) found a skink on the concrete.

I picked it up and put it between the foliage.

I first had to give it to the boy so that he could feel how slippery it was.

I wonder what skink this could be?

Wicked wheels Wednesday.

Many bicycles!

All colourfully decorated.

School Stories: Hubcaps everywhere


Each child at school had to bring $2.50 for a hubcap.

Each child had to clean a hubcap so that they could paint it.

Curtis is one of my After school care children. He is only 5 years old and still very young for his group. He wanted to show me his painted hubcap.

Here he is looking for his hubcap

He said this is his and I took a photo.

He turned around and said it wasn’t his!

His was still on the bench because it had not dried yet.

He showed it to me and

as you can see he did an excellent job.

The end result!
