It was such a chilly week but we managed to get so much done! On Monday we completed two worksheets, the first was a tracing worksheet which helped the children learn how to draw a diamond. The second worksheet was a connect the dots worksheet which focused on the correct number sequence. They had to count out aloud as they joined the dots and this helped with number recognition which we are practicing! The end result was an aeroplane – which they loved seeing come together. We decided it would also be fun to show the children the rhombus shape which is very similar to the diamond. Have some fun over the weekend and ask your child to draw a diamond independently – you will be surprised!

During free play, we put on a YouTube Blippi video which focused on all the different types of transport. The Crew really love Blippi and get so excited to see him. While some were watching Blippi others were creating roads and bridges with loose parts and blocks. The Crew love this and it is so important for them to use their creativity and problem-solving skills. Teacher Emma took groups of the Crew outside to work on some letter recognition. We really feel like their letter recognition is going to improve dramatically over the next couple of months and we are excited to re-assess the Crew at a later stage.

Wednesday was very eventful and started off with the Crew completing their art pieces. Whilst some were in Heart Matters, the others were in class with us. We tried another activity of visual representation and following instructions which went incredibly well. We were so pleased with Crews’ progress and listening abilities compared to the first time we tried this activity. The boys and girls created their very own maps whilst Teacher Clarissa explained a story about transport, roads, and maps and this time we added some colour. Great work! The Crew are definitely going to impress their teachers when they get to Smart Squad!

During story time, we read an interesting book about Children’s rights which the Crew really enjoyed. We have also started to learn our concert songs! The Crew are very excited about the upcoming concert and we can’t wait for you to see how awesome it is going to be! You may have heard your child singing something that goes like “let’s go swimming!” – this is their favourite song and the kiddies get so excited and invested, it is too cute!

Please keep up with your Letter Challenge books! We thank you for your hard work so far. Please remember to bring it back every Thursday with the library books 😊

Have a wonderful weekend. Next week is all about Recycling!

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.

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.
