Gg – Granny
Welcome back after our first Midterm break , we trust that everyone had a restful weekend with your friends and families.
This week in the Curious Crew class , we enjoyed our daily theme discussions , we spoke out our families and each child had a turn to tell us something about their families.
We emphasised that each family is different, in some way of another , and we explained that that’s okay. We spoke about how some families have pets , and some don’t. Some families have siblings and some don’t. Although families are different they are still so filled with love. We focused quite a lot on our number letter and colour of the week too , practicing rhymes and counting everyday.
For Art this week , we used recycled plastic bottles , sticks , beads and little self drawn pictures of our families to make our very own unique and beautiful family trees 🌲, the class really went into depth of making their family trees unique. This activity really intrigued their creative side of the brain, we saw many colours , patterns and beautiful art pieces coming out during this activity.
We also completed a fun simple tracing worksheet , and our purpose of this worksheet was to implement simple listening skills and emphasising the importance of following instructions
For our colour of the week, we did a fun art experiment, we did a fun team activity where we mixed blue and red to make purple . The class was so fascinated to see just how different each hand print came out , and just how different purples can be.
Curious crew Yoga week: partner poses was our theme today. Focusing on working as a team. We had to use our balance and core strength so as not to fall over. Lots of giggles, laughter
And it was amazing and fun to see the class doing these poses on the playground showing their fellow friends what they’ve learnt.
This week Coach Dave is focusing on prepping our fellow curious crew class friends for our exciting sports day we have coming up , they practicing their racing , and focused of hurdles.
During this the class also learnt simple skills such as waiting our turns , following instructions and cheering on our friends. NOTHING LIKE TEAM SPIRIT!!
Overall it was a wonderful week , and it was lovely learning about everyone’s families.
Next weeks theme is : My House
