Welcome back to Term 3
The first week back has been filled with children warmly greeting their friends and re-establishing friendships. We have welcomed some new friends in our classes and as they settle in to life at Tintern new friendships are quickly being formed.
Dramatic play and role play are a big part of our play-based curriculum. Pretending is important in child development as it helps children learn about themselves and their world.
At the end of Term 2 the staff and children collaboratively chose dramatic play areas of interest. The Early Learners decided on a hairdressers and coffee shop as well as a small world play with dinosaurs. Pre Prep A were keen to have a variety of shops just like Eastland as well as a little home with babies and dolls and a space area. Pre Prep B have extended on their holiday interest and set up a camping area. Outside, children are enjoying the fairy area and role play with wings and capes.
It is wonderful to see the children co -operate, negotiate turns, exchange ideas and work together to solve problems as well as use their imaginations in these areas.
We hope you enjoy the photos of the children having fun as they take on the different roles.
