At Sonas we continuously plan and deliver amazing, fun and developmental experiences for your child.
Throughout December our Owners were on a Holiday! They started their journey from Perth and went to Hong Kong. So, we decided to go on a holiday too. They sent us photos of their holiday. We learnt about different parts of the world, we made an airport we could check our luggage and we even made a cardboard airplane! We followed along the map to see where they were each day. We followed their Trip from Hong Kong through to London, Paris and Ireland. We then got to explore to see where each and everyone one of us are from. Pointing to the different parts of the world on the map.
Where are you from?
What great fun we had melting the ice. Using our fine motor skills, we got to use different objects to melt and break the ice. If we picked the ice up it broke into many little pieces. We then got some paint brushes and paints and started our very own science experiments with paint and melting ice.
By adding paint to the ice, we then found we had some coloured water! What can we do with coloured water an educator asked? In excitement we decided to do some painting! Using the paint brushes and the melted ice we started to use our imagination and paint things on the footpath and chalk board.
Nature play teaches kids to:
climb higher, think creativity, find their own rhythm, explore, imagine, rely on their senses, assess risk, test their boundaries, use their outside voice, observe, nurture life, resolve conflict, cultivate a sense of place and self, improvise solutions, feel free, recognise beauty, collaborate, be resilient, regulate stress, learn through play, wonder why, get messy, develop their strength, build immunity, gain perspective and FEEL CONNECTED TO THE WORLD!!!
Huntingdale Sonas held a parent evening night on Spinal Care. We had Dr Candice come in and discuss the importance of spinal care. She showed us indicators to look for in our children and ourselves and showed us how our children should be carrying their bags and gave us some stretches and fun games that we can do at home and at work.
We would like to thank Dr Candice Plummer for your hands-on presentation on Spinal Care.
