Kindergarten at St Anne’s

At St Anne’s Kindergarten we aim to provide high quality Early Childhood learning and teaching reflecting the principles of the National Quality Framework (NQF) tailored to our community of Harvey and surrounds.  We use the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF), the Western Australian Kindergarten Curriculum and research backed educational programs to formulate an early childhood program that is aligned to our whole school plans and initiatives and tailored to our community context.

Kindergarten is a time of tremendous social, emotional, physical and intellectual development and the learning activities are tailored to the individual child.

At St Anne’s Kindergarten we aim to help our students to grow and develop in all these areas by providing an orchestrated balance of play, deliberate and intentional teaching and spontaneous experiences and interactions.  Learning experiences in Kindy are active, engaging, challenging and connected to the children’s lives.

The learning environment is designed to be child centered, specifically catering for individual needs.  We want every child to feel safe, loved and valued.  We carry out the ‘Spirit of Jesus’ at St Anne’s ensuring children experience the love of God in every day interactions.  We desire to help your child feel safe enough to take risks in their own learning, develop knowledge and skills through problem solving, encouraging a willingness to ‘have a go’ and building a positive identity. All this allows for the children to flourish into the unique talented individuals that God intended them to be.

Term 1

The Kindy students have made fantastic progress in settling into a school environment.  They have been learning how to interact positively with peers and enjoy the learning experiences they encounter in the Kindy environment.  They are learning through asking questions, take turns, sharing, observing others, trying new things and working things out for themselves.

Each child has had the opportunity to tell the class about things they like in their spotlight time, verbalise grammatically correct sentences, develop the skill of identifying sounds in a word through syllabification, retell stories, rhymes and songs, all of which are developing their English Language skills.  Through intentional teaching activities and play they have learned to distinguish objects visibly by identifying colours, shapes and patterns directly developing their literacy and numeracy skills.  Whole body movement has been enjoyed along with arm and finger movement in order to develop their gross and fine motor skills.  All of these things will be consolidated and built on going forward.

The students are happy to be at school, feel safe with each other and are loved by their Kindy friends.  Each student is so blessed with their own unique talents and all have made a great start to the year.

Term 2

Term Two started with the Kindy students entering a chosen piece of Art in the local Agricultural Show and two of the students received Highly Commended certificates.

We treated our Mums during our special Kindy Mother’s Day.  We welcomed Mums, grandmothers and aunties into our classroom to enjoy some cupcake decorating, foot massage, nail polish, bracelet and jewelry box making.  And we gave them each a special gift made with love by their child.

As part of their Literacy learning the students have been listening out each day for a different letter of the alphabet and what words begin with that sound.  The students have engaged in a number of Oral language games focusing on improving their speech and enriching their vocabulary.  Object based newstelling has allowed each student to extend their thinking skills by describing objects, as well as continuing to develop their ability to speak in grammatically correct sentences in English.

Our ‘Talk For Write’ text we have been learning this Term has been ‘The Three Bears’ and we made some delicious porridge YUM!  We are looking forward to our Teddy Bear’s Picnic with the Pre Primary Class to celebrate the end of Term.

Mathematics skills have been developed through object based counting, describing the amount, size  and location of things using mathematical terminology.  The students have encountered numerals and the associated quantity they represent.  Mathematical processes are integrated into activities for example we made kites and measured the strings out.

The Kindergarten classroom and outside environments are student centered and students are encouraged to create and explore through play while wondering at the amazing world God has created.  We have grown beans and marveled at them sprouting and growing.  Our cubby outside was transformed into a Super Hero hideout as the Kindy students LOVE to dress up.

We have celebrated each member of our class this term having our KID OF THE DAY.  Each of our Kindy families have come in to help their child present information about themselves and their family.  It has been so interesting tasting different foods that have been brought in, hearing all about the different traditions and cultures of our Kindy families.

To complete the Term we are learning about the culture of the First Australians and have enjoyed making rain sticks and music with tapping sticks.  The students are also finding the animals unique to Australia fascinating.  A love of learning is visible in the students’ excitement when they encounter new experiences- we have so much fun learning in Kindy!
