This is such an exciting week – the children love it so much! They know a whole lot about sssssslithery snakes and tortoises, lizards and crocodiles, chameleons and turtles and we have loved having the opportunity to expand their knowledge this week! We have managed to have very long and involved ring time discussions, picking a different animal each day, and discussing it in depth! Reptiles are Teacher Gemma’s favorite thing so she knows more than the average Joe about them! The children learned a lot of new vocabulary like “cold blooded”, “vertebrates” and “camouflage” and had an absolute blast exploring our theme. 

For art this week we made colourful, camouflage chameleon, by tearing little pieces of coloured paper and sticking them onto a chameleon outline.  

We also made another awesome art piece, but unfortunately, you won’t be able to see it yet as they were just so cute, we decided to keep them for art expo!  

Wednesday was by far our most exciting day of the week, as Julian, the snake-man, brought his lovely animas for us to see. There were snakes, lizards, geckos, spiders, gogo’s, frogs and even hairless guinea pigs. Some of the Bugs were “all hands on deck”, and petted every single animal. Others were a little bit weary and chose to rather view from afar. 

We have also been hard at work preparing and practicing for our concert next week Saturday. Our Bugs have made us so proud! We hope you enjoy the show as much as we have enjoyed getting ready for it! 

Thank you for a lovely and exciting week! We are looking forward to another jam packed one next week ….   

And just to bring back our question of the week. Are you a snake person?? A) Absolutely! B) Hell NOPE! We look forward to your answers…  

Next Week’s Theme: Space (and lots of concert prep!) 







See you all on Monday!

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!

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.
