My School, My Class,  My Teachers










Welcome to the Curious Crew class of 2022! Wow what an awesome first week we have had. We have all made it through the first week, yes even you parents! The first couple of weeks can be so hard and emotional as everyone adjusts to all the changes. The kiddies are such troopers and we are so proud of how they have adapted and taken it in their stride.

We kicked off the week with taking the time to get to know each other in the classroom. We learnt some class and school rules that are there to make school a safe and happy place for us all. The children amazed us with their existing knowledge on the alphabet and counting. We coloured in a picture of ‘the first day of school’ – which they did so beautifully.  We made a school bag/briefcase and filled it with the activities that we got up to this week. We did a free drawing, a cover photo of our classroom, and finger dot traced the letter Aa. The Crew practiced their cutting skills by cutting out pictures that took their fancy, and they traced and practiced writing their names, wow we are so impressed with them!

Our days were filled with lots of interactive play, free play and activities, and of course story time which is a firm favourite!

All the children have settled into their new class so well and we look forward to what is to come this year! Let’s have a wonderful year!

Have a great and restful weekend everyone. We look forward to welcoming the Crew on Monday for week two.



A Breath of Fresh Air!

We took the Crew on a nature walk to find bits and bobs for our art project. This was so much fun and the children loved bringing nature back into the classroom.

Dates to Diarise:

Haircut Day  – 19 January

Bonfire Picnic  – 28 January

Lots of love

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.
