The Farm: Fruit & Vegetables









Vv – Vegetables

Theme discussions this week in the Curious crew consisted of discussion the difference between fruits and vegetables, we watched videos on this discovering that fruits come from the flower of the plant and vegetables come from the root. We focused on counting to 15 and stopping , this has become so easy for the class , they have been enjoying the challenge. We took some time to focus on our alphabet, practicing the name and the sound of the letters. 

During morning ring we practiced our concert songs as well as war cry’s for our upcoming sports day ! 

For art this week , we did a still life painting , each child had a turn to sit and look at the basket of fruit and paint what they saw. The end result of these art pieces were nothing short of amazing ! We were very proud of our very Arty and creative Curious crew kiddies. 

We also did a fun activity where the children had to copy a picture that was out on the board for them , we call this guided drawing , and this was a fun challenge that the class tackled like champs !! 

These pictures came out so amazing , the class tried so hard. 

We did fun little worksheets too , the one was based on our shape of the week ; circle , the worksheet had circles on it , and their job was to create things out of the circles eg ; ball , apple , sun , flower etc.

The worksheet was based on our number 15; their job was to draw only 15 apples on the tree and then complete the colouring of the picture. 


This week we focused on our races that will be in our upcoming sports day tomorrow , we tackled balancing , obstacle courses and so much more Overall it was a very energetic and super busy sports lesson ! 


This week in heart matters , teacher Hela focused on us being in control of our actions and behaviour , we did a fun little activity where teacher Hela would call out a scenario and if it was a bad scenario you had to shout “hold your horses” emphasising that you need to control what you feel and what you do. 

Reminder : Tomorrow is our SPORTS DAY ! 

May everyone have a blessed weekend.

For art this week, we decided it would be a cool idea for the Crew to make their own Reptile booklets. We set out a displayed and instructed the children to draw first in black as the outline and then to colour in the pictures they had drawn. These came out so beautifully and we have decided to keep them for Art Expo.

Winter, Temperatures, Fire and Ice

Our week was filled with quite a few different and fun activities! We did a combination of cooking and art this week where we made colourful and glittery ice-cubes that we froze with ice-cream sticks. Once frozen, the Crew then used them as paint ‘brushes’ and painted a rainbow.
