This week has been wonderful and full of excitement! All the kiddies have settled in so nicely and are beginning to feel comfortable in their new little “home’’. This week’s theme was “My Body’’. We started the week off by discussing how amazing our bodies are. We made x-rays out of our hands, which the Crew just loved!

After learning about our bones, we began to analyse some of our incredible inner body parts (our organs). Specifically, the blood that passes through them. Teacher Clarissa helped the kiddies make up their own blood jar, explaining all of the components that the blood consists of. The children had so much fun! (We created blood using red squishy balls, white polystyrene balls, red platelet squares and yellow water).

We drew a picture of our body image, there were some very cute and interesting pictures drawn, hehe!

With our colour of the week being RED, we thought it would be super interesting for the Crew to see how we can mix other colours with red. They were amazed and saw that when we mix red with white we get pink, when we mix it with blue we get purple and when we mix it with yellow we got orange.

We also started our cooking, FunFit Sports and Yoga intramurals this week. The children were so thrilled! We also had some extra mural demos that the children really enjoyed too!

Please note that not all worksheets will go home as we have a portfolio that we send out with reports in the second term. That way, you can see how much they have progressed throughout the year.

We hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Next week’s theme: My Senses

 

A Happy Body is a Happy Me!

The most important rule in our class is to ‘Keep your hands to yourself’. Parents – if you could please chat to your children at home about this rule and how they can respect their friends’ personal space during class time and playtime.

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 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!
