This week has been filled with so much excitement!

The Crew returned and had so much to say about their long weekend. We love hearing what they get up to!

We completed a worksheet that was a three-part activity. It allowed the children to really use the left and right sides of their little brain. First they had to colour a picture in, then they cut it out along the lines (as closely as they could) and lastly they had to build their puzzle/picture again by sticking it all together.

We were really proud of the Crew this week – they have grown immensely! During ring time we discussed all the different types of jobs that we get. Teacher Clarissa taught the Crew about the BIG word ‘occupations’. – Ask your child what the word ‘occupations’ means? This week’s theme was a real hit with all the children, they absolutely loved the topic of conversation. 

For art this week the girls made their own little nail salon where they had to paint nails – they loved this! The boys enjoyed making a laptop, they coloured in the keys of their name for letter recognition. They all had so much fun!

Home Tip: Work through counting from 0-10 with your little one. In class we really try to get them to STOP on the specific number so that they learn to follow instructions. By the end of the week they really conquered this!

Next Week’s Theme: Construction

Land, Air and Sea Transport

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!
