This week the Curious Crew class had the best time with the theme! We had a great amount of fun during ring time, speaking about our favourite reptiles , and we discussed what  reptiles are , and what makes a reptile a reptile. We spoke about them having cold blood and a hard skin , and that they lay eggs too. We also discussed their living environment and how they differ. 

AND we had a SUPER awesome visitor on Wednesday at school , we had the coolest reptiles come visit us at school and we got to touch and hold different reptiles, it was hands down the best day of the week. 

For art this week , we had so much fun ! We made our very own reptile booklets , which we had the best time creating, and we made the cutest hexagon Turtles, each child had to colour in , and cut out their own hexagons , and make their own turtles , we loved how each turtle came out so differently and beautifully. 

YOGA 

Welcome back after our mid-term break 

After doing our warm ups and stretches, we played broken telephone. 

The benefits of this game are: 

Improved communication and listening skills by encouraging kids to listen and focus to the words being said and to correctly relay the information to their friend. 

We had some very funny messages being passed along. One sentence in particular ” the yellow sun shines” came out at as “the yellow donkey” 

Heart matters 

In Heart Matters this week , Teacher Hela spoke about expected and unexpected reactions and emotions. She explained how things can happen unexpectedly and then we react accordingly to that action. 

FUNFIT SPORTS 

This week we had a super fun lesson with coach Trevor , he hyped us up so much , and really ensured we enjoyed our lessons with him. 

For the boys , they were divided into two teams , and they were placed with a bucket full of balls, and then coach Trevor called out a colour , and the teams had to take out all the colour balls before the time ran out. 

For the girls , the girls climbing skills were put to the test , each girl was given a small amount of time to climb up and climb back down before the buzzer went off. 

It was overall a fun and very educational week for the Curious Crew.

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!
