Our Themed Afternoons
Our themed afternoons are different clubs where we focus on intensive development of specific skills, knowledge and abilities and are related to our overall weekly topic. Clubs are: Music and Movement Mondays, Sports and Relaxation Tuesdays, Arts and Crafts Wednesdays, Fairy Tale Thursdays, My First Maths Fridays. During all activities children learn by experimenting, exploring and experiencing.
MUSIC AND MOVEMENT CLUB
The content of Music and Movement Club is not only singing songs but we also introduce children to different styles of music. Children are encouraged to engage auditory perception. We talk about and learn to play and recognize different musical instruments and try to match our movement to music.
SPORTS AND RELAXATION CLUB
This afternoon focuses on development of physical, gross motor skills, co-ordination and effective motor planning. During Sport activities children work on muscle strengths of large muscle groups and their social-emotional skills are largely engaged too.
