Occupations And People Who Help Us

Mar 25, 2022











Xx – X-ray


It is always such a treat to be able to hear and listen to children’s plans for the future… they always have the most open minds and innocent thoughts and ideas and when you listen close enough, they may just alter the way you think about and process life and its decisions.

And this is exactly what we did this week!  We sat down to ask our Bugs who and what they wanted to be when they grow up, and the answers we got were priceless! From Pilots to Princesses, Vets to Teachers, Firemen to Policemen, and Mommies and Daddies too. We discussed EVERYTHING!!  From what the different occupations do during the day, to what they wear to work, the different protection needed for different jobs and how different people help our everyday lives.

Friday dress-up day was so much fun! Thank you for dressing so beautifully Bugs!  You little people are such a huge inspiration to your teachers and we can’t wait to see how your future turns out and what you really grow up to be!

For our art piece this week, the Bugs got to choose between being a policeman or a fireman and then painted a paper cup either blue or red and coloured in the corresponding badges for those professions. We put that all together and made the most adorable siren hats that our Bugs just loved to wear, making siren noises at the same time!

Just a reminder of our Sports Day on Saturday the 9th of April. Busy Bugs must please wear something Green. We have been “training” very hard with Coach Brad every Tuesday and our sports skills are really shaping up!

Have a lovely weekend! 

Next Week’s Theme:

Construction, Building and Factories.



The Real Question ...

“The real question about life should be WHO you want to be when you grow up, not WHAT.

Faith is the blueprint of our dreams, action is the builder.”


 Dates to Diarise:
