Under the Sea in Kindergarten 2!

Korn learning the under the sea words with play dough!

This week in kindergarten two we have been learning lots about the ocean. We have been learning all about living and non-living things you might find under the sea. 

Everyone decorating their aquarium!

For the past two weeks in kindergarten we have been working on our very own aquariums. Using real shells and sand and lots of under the sea stickers!

Some students playing with the jigsaw during free choice play.

It’s important for children to develop a sense of independence; we allow this to develop by free choice play once a week. Giving children the chance to play with their favorite toys or puzzles in class.

The first topic of the new term this is the Ocean! In kindergarten two we have been learning all about what kind of different things you find under the sea. 

 Working together to create a giant submarine and anchor was very fun!

Team work is an important part of learning how to share and work with your friends nicely. 

One of the things that happens in the ocean is fishing! In kindergarten two we went outside the classroom to try our hand at fishing. Using magnetic rods and fish was very tricky, and required lots of hand eye co-ordination!

Looking at shells through the magnifying glass is very interesting, you can see all the curves and lines the ocean has made!
