Insects & Bees






13 & Recap



Ii – Insects

What a lovely buzzing week we have had! The Crew really enjoy this theme and exploring the world of insects and bees! We learnt a few interesting facts about bugs…Ladybugs spray a stinky liquid from…? An ant has 2…? Please ask them these questions to hear the answers, you will be so surprised at what the answers are!

Another busy week here in the Curious Crew class and we have been working in full swing! Matching shapes was an easy activity for the Crew! Then they shocked us with the most beautiful body image drawings…our teacher hearts were bursting with pride. Here you can really see how much progress these little people have made since the beginning of the year and what happy children we have.

For our main activity this week, the Crew were all seated at their tables, I went around showing the Crew what they were going to draw. Just like the map and farm fields we drew in previous themes, this was a guided drawing activity. This is preparing the Crew for next year when they will be copying sentences off the board. So we go step by step drawing simple insects. Once we were finished with this activity, the Crew got to colour in the insects they drew. Great going Crew! We hope you love their work as much as we do!

The Crew had some fun practising their letters. We went to the deck and one by one the Crew wrote the letters of the alphabet on the deck with chalk. I was super impressed at how well they did with this exercise and how much they enjoyed it! Definitely something we are going to do again.

Next week’s theme: Frog and ponds, rivers and dams

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.
