This week in the Curious Crew class , we focused a lot on Easter during theme discussion, we focused on the real meaning behind Easter and we watched a few educational videos to try make it easier for the kids to understand, we also sang our weekly songs daily for our shape and we counted to our number too. Everyone loved speaking about Easter and their excitement for the Easter bunny was real!!

For Art this week , we had many fun easter activities planned for everyone, we made the cutest little egg shell plant, it was a fun idea Teacher Clarissa got from our Phonic book last week, called ‘Egg Heads’, each child had the chance to decorate their egg shells then place Chia seeds into their eggs, and its been their responsibility this week to water their seeds.

We also got super creative with waxies and water paint this week, each child had a secret pattern drawn on their eggs for their cards and they had to use different coloured water paints to bring out their patterns.

Using paper cups we really put on our creative caps and we made a hopping bunny using bottle caps, elastics and we drew on bunny faces and pasted on ears, the class did so well, and each of their bunnies are so unique.

 It was a lot of fun this week with all our different art activities we had planned for everyone , we all had a blast

On Wednesday we had a super fun and exciting outing to Eagles Tumbling at John Barrable Hall, the kiddies that went got to explore all the apparatus and they all got put into groups with different coaches and they got to part take in different activities that the coaches had planned for them 

 HEART MATTERS

This weeks Heart Matters lesson was based on how they feel according to what they hear, so teacher Hela played different music for them, and they had a turn to tell the group how they feel, the kiddies loved being able to dance and move around to different kind of music. It was an educational, and everyone defiantly learnt new things.

May everyone have a blessed Easter weekend with their friends and families, to those going away may you travel safely.

We are looking forward to Term 2 with our Curious Crew and all the fun times and adventures that lay ahead.

 

Wishing All Our Christian Families And Friends A Happy And Blessed Easter ...

Land, Air and Sea Transport

Land, Air and Sea Transport

During ring time every morning we tried to get the Crew to use ’transport’ in the sentences they used when describing different types of transport. We want them to understand the concept of what transport means and that yes its cars and trucks and planes and boats but what are the purposes for these great machines? It was very funny to hear when asking the Crew how do we know where to go and we have never been there before…the map on mommy and daddy’s phone. LOL Back in the day it was a book with addresses and road maps. But good answer Crew!

The Farm: Farm Animals

The Farm: Farm Animals

The week started off with the Crew’s first Reggio Emilia Loose Parts art project. The Crew had in front of them farm animals, small acorns, white pebbles, Jacaranda seed pods and corks. They were instructed to make their own farm using these materials. It was very interesting to see who loved this art piece and who wasn’t quite interested. How they went about setting out their farm yards. Lovely work Crew. We will be doing a Reggio Emilia art piece each week as an intermural activities. Let the imaginary play really begin!
