My Pet









Pp – Pets

Woof-woof! Meow! Tweet-tweet! These are just a few of the sounds that could be heard throughout our classroom this week! The Bugs absolutely loved this theme and had so much fun telling us all about what pets they have and what their names are.

There are so many different types of pets, most are considered “normal”, and others… not so much!

We spent this week discussing the different types of pets, what they eat, what toys they like to play with and the different names they can have. We can tell by how these Bugs talk about their pets, that they love them very much!

We had so many gorgeous pets come to visit us this week:

Wednesday: Georgia brought her doggie, Nonsense

Thursday: Ella brought her cockatoo, Milly

Friday: Rourke brought his hamster and tenrec

Our art this week is getting added to our collaborative art piece from the past 3 weeks, and will only be available for display at Art Expo!

For cooking this week, we made adorable treats for our pets at home. Please note, these are not for hoomans!

To make these delicious treats we used:

2 cups of flour

2 jars of sweet potato purity

Mix it all together, roll it out and cut out your biscuits.

We hope your fur babies love these!

We hope you all have a lovely long weekend, and we will see you all back next week Wednesday!

Father’s Day and Sport

We spent lots of time this week asking our Bugs questions about their Dads; What their names are, if they know how old their Dads are, what work Dad does, whether he plays any sports… And we while didn’t always get answers to all of these questions, one thing we can say for certain, is that very clear that our Bugs just LOVE their Dads!

From airplanes to cars, bikes to boats, scooters to submarines… the list goes on and on!  We got to look at photos and videos of all of these different modes of transport and these Bugs learnt so much!

The Farm: Farm Animals

The Farm: Farm Animals

We learned all about the different noises these animals make, and the different names that the boy and girl animals have, such as hen and rooster or sheep and ram. We learned the names of the baby animals, like chick, lamb and piglet! It was such fun pretending to be these animals at ring time! Our children have very vivid imaginations and have a lot of existing knowledge about farm animals.
