Kindy Orientation Day
Michelle Auld November 18th
On Tuesday 8th November 2016, St Joseph’s School held its Kindy Orientation Day, where we welcomed our new Kindy students for 2017. Also on this day our Year 2 students moved into the Senior Classroom to familiarise themselves with their new classroom for 2017.
The Kindy students participated in a variety of activities to assist them with their transition into Kindy next year. These activities included reading the story of ‘The Gingerbread Man’; using ipads – students did some letter formation and sound games; felt boards – students recreated the Gingerbread Man story; colouring – students designed their own paper gingerbread man; play dough – students made a play dough gingerbread man; maths – counting the gingerbread man to match the dots; interactive white board – count how many buttons the gingerbread man has; and the students also did some cooking – they made REAL gingerbread men!
