This week has been such a great one! It has been so nice and warm and sunny! We started the week off by discussing our five senses and how we use each one differently. The children closed their eyes while Teacher Clarissa made little noises and they had to hear and guess what sounds she was making. The Crew also enjoyed sticking their hands in a pillowcase (although slightly nervously!) where they then chose a toy with their eyes closed and tried to feel and guess the object. So much fun!

We decided to take a different approach with the kiddies when discussing their senses and so introduced them to braille and sign language! The children stuck diamante onto dots which in braille resembles their name. They had so much fun running their fingers over the bumps and “feeling’’ their names. During snack and lunch, the kiddies were asked what their food tastes like? Salty or sweet?

During cooking we got to smell and taste all different types of foods. Some yucky, some yummy! They all enjoyed this!

We hope you have a great weekend!

Next week’s theme: Health & Hygiene

 

Helpful Tip for the Week!

Saying “please’’ and “thank you’’ to our teachers and friends is very important in the classroom. We believe in treating our friends with care – we love them and they are special to us. We don’t shout at our friends and our motto is: SHARING IS CARING!

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!
