Qq -queue

What an exciting week for the Curious Crew class! It was Market Day and Mommy/Daddy and Me Yoga day this Friday! Thank you to the Crew class for participating beautifully and for creating all of your spectacular goodies! We were blown away with how wonderfully the day planned out!

We completed assessments this week, focusing on cutting and pasting, independent name writing and letter formation and recognition. The Crew’s cutting skills have improved immensely since the beginning of the year and they should be proud of themselves. Letter formation is coming along nicely, it will continue to improve with time and practice.

We have been compiling the end of year workbooks so that you can all have a look at how much your child has progressed. The Crew coloured in their front cover this week and even their colouring skills have improved – colouring within the lines and use their wonderful imaginations to create beautiful master pieces!

For art this week we worked hand in hand with some assessment skills. The children had to cut out all of the goodies that they would like to buy from magazines and place them into their little purses. Next, the Crew coloured in their own money, cut it out and placed it in their little purses. Well done for working so hard. It is always wonderful seeing what the children would like and how well they hold the page with one hand and cut with the other. Great stuff boys and girls!

Teacher Hela really worked hard with the children this week by explaining the concept of ‘loss’ and how sometimes all things have to come to an end. The children created their very own candle holders. So beautiful! Fun Fit Sports was also filled with assessments this week and it is always such a thrill for the Crew to go participate and run around outside.

Homework Tip: As we are nearing the end of the year it is important for the children to be Grade R ready. Please could you practice some name writing at home. Write it out for them first and let them trace over it. Alternatively, most of the Crew are able to write their names without any assistance.

The Real Meaning of Christmas!

Please don’t forget that our 12 Days of Christmas initiative starts on Monday. Keep an eye out for the daily reminder messages of what to bring. We never really realize how fortunate we are until we see the needs of others. This initiative is an amazing way to help those who need it the most!

Next Week’s Theme:

Travel and Holidays



Nearly there people….

It is that time of year again, the crazy time where everything just gets busier and chaotic although festive. Let’s stay safe, healthy and push to the end of the year (can’t believe we are nearly there!) Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Only 3 short weeks of school left! Don’t forget to look out for the Holiday Club Registration Form coming your way soon!

Holiday Club will run from the 8th till the 17th of December. 

Lots of love

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!
