Washing Hands - 21st June 2022
Planned: After our group time songs today the children were then asked to go wash their hands two by two. Isaiah held onto Abuk's hand then guided her to wash her hands. Abuk was able to wash her hands and use the soap container with out little help. Isaiah is a pro he knew exactily what to do. Elijah needed some help at first but did really well and was able to dry his hands and put the towel into the bin. Jack turned on the tap then proceeded to put the soap on then dry his hands before finding his drink bottle. Elya also needed some guidience to put the soap on but was able to wash and dry her hands then off to get her drink bottle and find herself a seat. Tilly did well too washing her hands with the water she had some trouble with the taps turning them on but did really well. Marlee and Pilar pulled up their sleeves all by themselves then using the soap dispenser with ease washed their hands while having a little chat together. Lucas and Hunter needed help with their sleeves but were really capable of the soap and water and then of course Hunter said to Lucas "look" as he puts the paper into the bin with a big laugh this then made Lucas follow his cue then off to find a chair for lunch. Kavith was able to follow the instructions but needed some help with the soap dispenser. Aarvi loves to wash her hands and putting the soap on then scrubing her hands back and forth before finding some paper to dry them. Samara did well but needed some help with the process.

Outcomes: 4: Children are confident and involved learners Elements: 4.1 Children develop dispositions for learning such as curiosity, cooperation, confidence, creativity, commitment, enthusiasm, persistence, imagination and reflexivity. Children were supported in this active learning experience.
This learning experience can be linked to Piaget's theories. He believes the child is an active learner and that the child must be given opportunities to explore , discover and experiment.
Critical Reflection: The children today were quite capable of listening to the instructions from educators to wash their hands for lunch and finding their drink bottles. Educators are helping children and supporting them in a positive way in their self help skills. Follow up: Continue on with our self help skills.
