It has been a great successful week in the Curious Crew class! The Crew are so comfortable in there new environment and are all enjoy coming to school with very few tears. We had a great learning week with our theme having so much to discuss regarding our bodies and learning about important body parts like our hearts , lungs , kidneys etc .

We did quite a few art activities this week. Teacher Clarissa really thought of a fun and exciting way to explain the components of blood using a plastic bottle and

  • Red Orbeez for blood
  • Red plastic for red blood cells
  • Polystyrene balls for white blood cells
  • Yellow food colouring in water for Plasma

This week we focused on tracing and practicing our name writing , as well as our cutting skills , this is something that will be a main focus throughout the week.

Helpful tips of the week: The most important rule in our class is to ‘Keep your hands to yourself’ (Our action for this, when telling the Crew, is giving themselves a hug). As much fun as it is to hang on to and hold our friends, most of the time it ends up in tears rather than smiles. If you as parents could please chat to your children at home about this rule and respecting their friends’ personal space, class time and playtime will run much smoother.

Next week’s theme: My senses

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!
