This week was our International Week! All week we have been learning interesting information about our countries, ranging from Kenya to Ireland, Bolivia to Papua New Guinea. We now know about their capital cities, their unique animals and their tasty food. Throughout the week, we had visits from children in primary school, where we were able to share our information, both in English and in Russian. On Friday morning, we gathered together to watch performances from all the classes. Everyone was dressed up – what lovely colours and costumes! We performed traditional dances, songs in foreign languages, and country fact files. After this, we completed our passport back in class, now full of visa stamps from all the different countries. We also made souvenir plates, decorated with symbols from their respective countries. It sure has been a busy week, but we now have a better understanding of some of the amazing countries and cultures from around the world.

Today during group time, we greeted each other and listened to our classmates so that we could memorise what everyone said. The task was tricky but it helped establish a community of listeners as well as helpers. When someone forgot the next word in the sequence there was always and eager helper screaming the answers.

«My favourite food is.....». The children drew a variety of international treats as well as some gretchka. We spent the day getting to know each other. We found out about each other’s favourite foods, favourite colours as well as each other’s families. We enjoyed getting to know each other better and making friendships for the year.

Modeling is the reproduction of the essential properties of an object, to create substitutes of objects and work with them. As symbols-substitutes in modeling are used subject images, pictures, geometric shapes, silhouette images. Research and practice confirm that with the help of visual models preschool children can understand the connection between different objects. Modeling develops spatial thinking, visual perception, logic, memory, and fine motor skills. During the Modeling lesson, the students of Nursery BB used the construction scheme to replicate the model of a doghouse with blocks and on a piece of paper.

Play allows children to use their creativity while developing their imagination, skill, physical, cognitive and emotional strength.  Play is important to healthy brain development and allows children at a very early age engage and interact in the world around them. Children learn most of their life long skills at early ages through play. They learn how to socialise and communicate with others through play interactions, as well as develop their negotiation skills. Even as early as stacking bricks allows children the opportunity to develop mathematics skills. When children are playing they are learning from their own experiences and are more likely to retain their knowledge. Play both inside and outside are equally important, as they enable children to explore different environments and develop different skill sets. Research shows us that many of the fundamental tasks that children must achieve, such as, exploring, risk-taking, fine and gross motor development can be most effectively learned though outdoor play, before mastering these skills in an indoor environment.
