Welcome Spring… Finally!  

We had so much fun learning about Spring last week. We spoke about what happens during spring time; flowers blooming, the grass starts to go green again, leaves start showing on the trees and most importantly, the weather starts to get warmer! Yay!  

We also spoke about having respect for plants, flowers and trees. We learned that we are not allowed to break or damaged a tree, and that we can only pick flowers if we are going to use them for something.   

“Spring, a lovely reminder of how beautiful change can be.” Spring is all about new beginnings and changes. Spring brings new growth, weed out the bad and make room for something beautiful. Let’s all make it our Spring time goals, after such a challenging year, to make some changes, get rid of the bad in our lives to make space for beautiful things! 

For art this week we made 1 beautiful art piece, but you are going to have to wait for our Art Expo to see it! 

This weeks’ theme: Trees, plants, wood and paper

WOW!!! What a week we have had! We are so proud of all of our Bugs for doing so well with photographs! Uncle Tiago and Teacher Gemma (who was assisting with the photos) were blown away at how brave you all were, and how well you smiled!  

We had a great week learning about trees plants, wood and paper and all the amazing things that can be done with them. We learned that trees are wood, and that wood is then used to make the paper that we create all of our beautiful art work on. We reinforced last week’s lesson about respecting nature and the beautiful world we have been given!  

For art this week, we finished up and finalised some of our art pieces for art expo, as well as made a huge 3D tree by painting a cardboard pipe brown, using more bark to cover it and collecting fallen branches that were placed inside.  

We hope you are all super excited and getting in touch with your creative sides for our amazing hat parade! We can’t wait to see the incredible creations! 

Just a reminder to please send in your cereal boxes! 

Have a wonderful weekend!

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

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.
