My Family









Gg – Granny

“Families are like fudge, mostly sweet with a few nuts!” 

Families come in many different shapes and sizes, and each one is as special as the next. We love all of our Busy Bugs’ families and are proud to be a part of our giant EcoKids Family! 

We had so much fun learning about our families this week. We learnt about our mommies and daddies real names, not just “mommy” and “daddy”. We also asked each Bug what they call their other family members like granny, ouma, giagia and so many more! We spoke about extended family like aunts, uncles and cousins, as well as super extended family, which are the friends that become family. 

For art this week, we created our family tree, but you are going to have to wait for Art Expo to see these! 

We also asked everyone to send in a family photo of themselves for a surprise slideshow for the Bugs. The looks on their faces were priceless as they realized it was them and their family on the screen! As soon as they saw themselves, they would jump up and say, “that’s me!!!!”  It was so cute!

Just a reminder to please trim nails. 

We look forward to an awesome Sports Day tomorrow in support of our brave Busy Bug, Kai!

Science and Experiments

This is such a fun and interactive theme! The children love watching all the teachers run around, crazy professor style, making things fizz, bubble, melt, explode, glitter and whizz! We love it – it gives us a chance to be kids again too! What an EPIC WEEK!

We loved hearing the excitement in their voices when they spoke about the Easter eggs they are expecting and the happy, hopping bunny who brings them! Spending time with children all day makes us see the magic in all the small things, and the wonder in events that as adults we take for granted.
