Ah what a wonderful week we had learning about our emotions, love and Valentine’s Day. We had a very busy week as we had a student teacher (teacher Carla) visiting us. The children loved her and she had some lovely activities planned.

We started learning about all the kinds of emotions one can experience. The children had to search the classroom for hidden little faces that expressed each emotion. We read the story “Inside Out” which is a great lesson on emotions. The children were all tasked with making their own ‘emoji’ face. They had all kinds of expressions to choose from to make up their own unique feeling. While some were working on this, others were working on a “Brain Gym”. This activity really challenged them but we were very impressed with how they managed.

We started working on our Valentine’s Day art and crafts. A tricky task that they were given was to cut out little hearts to add to their Valentine’s Day card. This really challenged their fine motor and coordination skills. We are sure you are going to love their efforts 😊

Heart Matters was another great reinforcement on the importance of emotions this week. They learnt about the feeling of being scared and had to colour in particular things that scared them.

Cooking was a hit this week where they made eggs in toast with a heart shape cut out. They loved this fun activity with Chef Buso.

We continued to challenge the Crew this week by starting with our ‘class jobs’. Each child will be given the chance to have a little class job. They all love this and can’t wait to have a turn to be line leader, snack/lunch helper and plant waterer.

Have a wonderful weekend all!

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.
