Dance Parade - 24th August 2023

Planned: To continue celebrating book week, the possums did a dance parade outside to show off their dress-up costumes. I put on some music, and the children lined up behind Jo and began walking and dancing down the bike track. We had all different types of costumes. Adriana and Annalise were Minnie Mouse, Tilly and Nyiel were princesses, Pilar was Tinkerbell, Naiama was Ironman, Evie was Doc McStuffins, Lucas was Andy Davis, James was Willy Wonka, Kavith was a pirate, Jack and Carter were Spiderman, Hunter was a Minion and Jo was Pete the Cat. The children had fun going up and down the bike track, and after a few laps, they continued playing with their friends.

EYLF Outcomes

Outcomes: 4: Children are confident and involved learners Elements: 4.1 Children develop a growth mindset and learning dispositions such as curiosity, cooperation, confidence, creativity, commitment, enthusiasm, persistence, imagination and reflexivity. The children were enthusiastic about dressing up and used their costumes to enhance their imaginative play.


This learning experience can be linked to Smilanski's theories. Smilanski believes that children develop and thrive in social settings and that the interactions between a child and their peers contribute to their creativity and intellectual growth.


Critical Reflection: This activity went well, and the children enjoyed showing off their costumes. The educators got involved by dressing up, joining in, and encouraging children to participate. Follow Up: Continue book week activities.
