Who knows what a group of giraffe is called? Let us know on the class WhatsApp group!

We started off the week with a bang and continued assessing our brilliant Curious Crew. They are doing so well and we are very proud of each child for progressing thus far. Keep up the good work boys and girls!

We completed our art work on Thursday after doing a little each day. We painted our chameleons in water colours which turned out beautifully! Whilst some were completing their art pieces, others were completing independent number formation.

On Tuesday the children cut out their cactus ovals and this allowed them to practice their cutting skills. We were so pleased with how the children have grasped the concept of holding the paper with one hand and cutting with the other. On Wednesday, the Crew had some fun in the sun with Teacher Emma. They sprinkled some sand onto their calendar paper to form the base of their desert. So much fun! On Thursday we finally stuck all of the art elements together to form our desert setting. They turned out so beautifully!

We had such fun during our ring time sessions this week. Our Crew know all about African animals so we decided to learn all about other kinds of wild animals from all over the world! First, we learnt all about the wild animals of the Amazon Rain Forest. The Crew were amazed to learn just how big an Anaconda snake gets, yikes! We then learnt all about the wild animals of the Tongass National Forest, home to many bears! We then discovered all about the wild animals of Antarctica followed by the wild animals of the desert – where we find our chameleon, hehe! We showed the Crew where each place can be found on our globe – they found this very fascinating! 

We introduced the Crew to the concept of 2D vs 3D shapes. We made a beautiful cube to bring the shape of the week to life. The Crew loved seeing the end product and seemed very chuffed that they had learnt about a new complex shape.

During cooking the Crew had loads of fun making a little Porcupine out of fruit and chocolate chips. They were very excited to eat their master piece for morning snack, hehe! At Fun Fit Sport we had a challenge to see who could hang from the monkey bars for the longest – wow we were really impressed with some of the Crews strength!  

We hope you all have a wonderful weekend! On a side note, could we please ask that you practice the months of the year with your child over the weekend and specifically focus on the month that they were born. Thank you! We would also like to thank you for all of your effort with the letter challenge books, so far, they are looking awesome!

Have a wonderful and warm 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.

Caring For Our World: Recycling

We just couldn’t be more proud of the Curious Crew! With every ring discussion everyone had something to add about saving the world and throwing away rubbish! They understand the importance of recycling and really enjoy making things to reuse.
