Pp – Pets

This week in the Curious Crew class , we enjoyed our daily theme discussions , we spoke about different kind of animals we get that we can keep as pets , and we also took the time to discuss the different needs that these pets have , we spoke about how snakes , lizard and spiders need a tank/cage and how a fish would need a fish tank etc.

We focused quite a lot on our number letter and colour of the week too , practicing rhymes and counting everyday. We took the time and practiced counting and stopping at number 9 , the class was very determined to get this right.

For Art this week , we made a very cute little origami art puppy to add to our , and original Art piece using cereal boxes homes we made last week. 🐶

This week we tried something new , and boy oh boy did the class impress us with their writing skills. So each child had the option on which word they wanted to write, they could either choose a word using our letter of the week , or they could choose a pet eg; Pink or Cat , and they had to copy the word onto their piece of paper using the correct letter formation. They did so so well. And they loved the challenge !!

Another fun activity we did was based on visual perception, the class was given a paper with overlapping images and they had to only colour in the cat and the bunny. This helps with foreground and background skills.

FUNFIT SPORTS

This week coach Dave was focusing on our sports day preparation; we went through every single station that will be set up on the day , and we went through what will be done on our fun sports day !!!!

HEART MATTERS

This week our heart matters lesson was very cute and original, teacher Hela used two toilet rolls to demonstrate how we feel when we’re in our red zone and in our green zone of emotions. And we then practiced ways on how to get from our red zone to our green zone. The class absolutely LOVED decorating their toilet rolls , we had some beautiful art pieces. Thank you teacher Hela for the wonderful activities on this !

Overall it was a wonderful week filled with so much laughter , fun and adventures !

Please remember that next week is a 3 day week. Stay safe and see everyone on Wednesday.

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!
