Warmly, Susanne and Jemma Cassia Three Dear Families, This week (Thursday 18th August) we are holding our talk The wonder of learning from Early Years onwards in the Cassia 2 classroom. This will be at 7pm. The talk will give an insight into the learning focus in a Steiner Early childhood setting. There will also be an overview of the primary curriculum and how it follows on from the foundational work begun in the Kindergarten. Please come if you can. Speaking of wonder, our walk last week was full of wonder! It is so interesting; depending on the day and the mood of the class how some walks we stride out and really need to move and then other times we stop and gaze; so much to see! Last week was the latter; we really noticed so much and how wondrous it all seemed. We know spring is around the corner as the paper daisies and Billy Buttons are poking their resilient heads through the stony hard ground and eremophilas are flowering on the bushes. The cassia and witchetty bushes and the Mulga trees are still waving their golden flowers. We found stones of all different sizes and colours and noticed sticks and bark with interesting shapes. We also saw plenty of Bogan-flea; the prickles that need avoiding at all cost! And how much we love coming back to our classroom at the end of the walk to feast on our warm porridge with honey and cinnamon on top! Simple rituals can be so lovely! Thursday is soup day! Please send a vegetable that day instead of fruit. Thank you to Kaye, Patricks Mum who is coming in on a Thursday afternoon to help us with craft. It is wonderful to have that second pair of helping hands! If you would like to help in some way in the Kindy, or have a particular skill you would like to offer, please let me know. Have a wonderful week!
