Anna – I love Mondays! My Mummy takes me to Montessori School or sometimes I come with Daddy. Teacher June always meets us at the door with a great big smile and shakes my hand. She asks me “If I had a nice weekend?” Mummy reminds of my news from the weekend so I can share it with all my friends at news time. Teacher June helps me to hang up my bag and coat as sometimes it can be heavy. When all my friends arrive its Montessori time!
Brendan – Teacher June tells my friends and I it’s going to be snack time soon but I don’t need to hurry with my work as she always gives us loads of time to finish.
Anna – After we wash our hands, my friends and I line up to go and get our lunch bags. I wonder what healthy snack Mummy has packed for me today?
Lorraine – At snack time we listen to lovely music. I hope it’s going to be the animal magic CD today. That’s my favourite. Its snack time for Nemo too!
At circle time we learn lots of cool songs, which I love to teach my little sister. Our teacher talks about our weekly theme – maybe what life is like in Africa, or what kind of fish are in the Great Barrier Reef, a conversation about our planets or even all about road safety, when Garda Louise came for a visit.
Yvonne – On Monday it’s news time and I can’t wait to tell my friends what mischief I got up to at the weekend. Sometimes we tell our friends funny stories about something that happened at home.
Kasim – At this time on Wednesday it’s Yoga time. I wonder what new yoga poses we will learn this week? Teacher says Thursday is Arts and Crafts Day. We are learning all about our solar system this week, so teacher explains we will get to paint some planets. Wow, I’m so excited – I want to paint Pluto!
Catherine – Mummy says she’ll pick me up at 12.30. I’ll tell her all about my fun day.
But when Mummy arrives my response to her usual question of “What did you do at school today” is no different to a lot of my friends. “Oh I can’t remember, I guess I did a lot of stuff!!”
