So long Term 2...Bring on Term 3!!

Well with all the madness of our last week of Term 2 I managed to miss the blog last week...hopefully you have all been too distracted in the school holidays to notice?! Our final week of Term 2 was devoted to FUN. We pulled out all the old favourites and had a blast. The main request from our littlies was the re-emergence of the ball pit and our Ready kids had pulled out the claves for the Copy Me song before I even got a chance to put the music on! The ever popular parachute got a workout and the bubble machine now needs a much deserved holiday too. It was great fun and went too fast as always.

Of course there is no rest for the Head Start team during the school holidays (in and out of the office for that matter!) we have all been madly busy preparing for another fun-filled-educational-motivational Term 3. We have 8 new foundation skills to introduce to you all and will of course be outlining those here each week throughout the term. Let me just say that there have been LOTS of new resources being put together so lots of new things to look forward to! I have also been flat out sourcing lots of new music for all our classes and there are some goodies in store, a couple of personal favourites are The Fancy Dance and Helicopter songs - they will get everyone grooving. I am SUPER excited that we have ordered a huge Stretchy Cord which will be another fantastic option for our final activity song...trust me the little ones will love it.

The Puku Playdate classes are being fine-tuned and are looking to be heaps of fun for both baby and Mum. I have been brushing up on my baby-massage skills and have been revising the all important core and floor exercises that are SO crucial in the post-natal period.

So now all there is left to do is SIGN UP if you haven't done so already - there are still a few spaces throughout the week and in our new Saturday classes so be sure to give us a call on 487 9698 or check out www.headstart.net.nz to enroll before the first week of August.

In the meantime have a wonderful rest of the school holidays, the weather gods have definitely been on our side eh?! We have been having a wonderful time with our little ones' grandparents staying with us, she will be very disappointed to lose her entourage next week but thankfully we will have the Cadbury's Chocolate Festival to keep us entertained by then. We are heading out to the Teddy Bear's Picnic at Larnach Castle on Thursday and then may brave the crowds at the Jaffa Race on Friday - perhaps we will see you all on our travels!
Till Term 3...stay safe and happy!
