Love of Learning Morning Tea

Chilverleigh’s annual Love of Learning Morning Tea was held on Thursday 11 and Friday 12 June for the Kindy and Preschool Rooms. During the morning our lovely Parents, Grandparents and even Great Grandparents shared some unique experiences with the children including observing the Japanese classes in action. The children’s enthusiasm for their Japanese lessons was clearly on display.

Our guests also enjoyed a delicious morning tea before spending time with the children in their rooms. Guests in the Kindy Room enjoyed a unique rendition of “Open, Shut Them” led by Toni. There was just as much excitement in the Preschool Room as our guests participated in creative activities with the children both in the classroom and outside in our outdoor play area.

Thank you to everyone who joined us for the mornings. We hope you had an enjoyable time.

Ayana suggested making the volcano again today as she still feeling excited about making the volcano yesterday. Ayana, Olivia, Madison and Martin went out to the garden and dug a few holes in the soil to form the volcano basement. Then they went inside and each of them filled a plastic bottle with vinegar and followed by water. After that, they added food colouring and dishwashing liquid to the bottle. Then each of them put a small yogurt container on top of each basement and with soil around. They started to put the ‘volcanic ash’ into the containers. A few more children stoped play and had a look. The ‘volcanic ash’ made bubbles and as the children were add more, the bubbles running down from the top to the bottom of the basement just like the erupt from a volcano. As Martin requested, Madison mixed her colour into Martin’s volcano and they were really excited to see the result. The watered vinegar worked as well as the pure vinegar as it made enough bubbles.

This experiment developed children’s exploration skills, problem solving skills, the gravity and the mixing of different properties.

Oil and water experiment:

Four Children mixed water and oil with a water

bottle each to see if water and oil could mix together.

The used red food colouring as well to see better.
