Dd – Dinosaur

If there’s one theme that we’ve enjoyed having over two weeks , it’s been DINOSAURS. The class love theme discussions , they love watching our educational videos on fossils and dino facts. It’s been a super fun theme to have , and the Curious crew class have loved learning about the Dinosaurs. This week we have also focused on our Teen numbers (11-20). 

We also discussed our shape of the week in detail too. 

We played a fun phonics game during a ring time , where a-z letters were placed all over the carpet and each child had a turn to find the letter they were asked to find. 

ART 

Art for dinosaurs have by far been our favourite !. 

There have been numerous pieces of art over the past two weeks , we started off with a fun little dinosaur egg , each child needed to water paint their egg and cut it out to make it look cracked with a little dinosaur inside , they loved this art activity. 

We then made the most creative pterodactyls out of Penne pasta too , which was the most fun activity of the week by far !! The class loved this challenge and excelled too ! 

This week we have done a very cute dinosaur puzzle , each child had to colour in a picture and cut it out , then needing to place it in the correct order creating a dinosaur picture. 

We topped our week off with 2 teen number worksheets , 

One of the instructions were to count the dots and in that block 3 different options were given for answers , the kiddos had to identify the correct number and colour it in. 

The other worksheet was an 11-20 colour by number worksheet of a bunny , and this was a hit. The kids loved it and boy did they colour in the most beautiful pictures !! Well done Curious Crew ! 

YOGA 

We had yoga today! 

Our yoga song today was “silly to calm”, it is a quick kids’ yoga movement break complete with dancing, yoga stretching, and breathing. Our yogis went from silly to calm in 3 minutes. 

We did our calming shapes breathing… circle, square and triangle. 

YAY FOR YOGA DAY! 

FUNFIT SPORTS

This week , Coach Trevor put us to the test again In a fun cricket game. Each child had a turn to see how many out of 13 balls they could hit , and boy were we impressed with the talent of the kiddos ! Well done to you all.

Reptiles

For art this week, we decided it would be a cool idea for the Crew to make their own Reptile booklets. We set out a displayed and instructed the children to draw first in black as the outline and then to colour in the pictures they had drawn. These came out so beautifully and we have decided to keep them for Art Expo.

Winter, Temperatures, Fire and Ice

Our week was filled with quite a few different and fun activities! We did a combination of cooking and art this week where we made colourful and glittery ice-cubes that we froze with ice-cream sticks. Once frozen, the Crew then used them as paint ‘brushes’ and painted a rainbow.
