Welcome back to Term 2 Curious Crew Parents ! And what a busy and adventurous term we have ahead ! We have many exciting things coming ! 

Theme discussions were full of fun detail and many different animals this week , we went beyond our ordinary animals , we explored the Amazon jungle, our Antarctic animals and so much more. 

We spoke about the different environments that these places offer these animals , and we then had a look at what animals we get in these environments. Teacher Clarissa showed the class the most beautiful pictures of the different animals and the class was just taken away by the many different kinds. 

For art this week , we made the most beautiful Chameleon art piece , each child had to water paint their chameleon , create their own cactuses, and design their own unique desert art piece using sand too. 

It’s wonderful seeing all the different , unique pieces coming together. 

For our shape of the week , we had to make our very own 3D cube , each child coloured in their cubes , we then helped them paste together their cube , and this helped them understand the concept of a 3D shape. 

We also focused a lot on our very special Mother’s Day gifts for our very special mommies this week , the children really worked hard and added in a lot of love into these pieces too . 

I am sure the mommies are going to LOVE their beautiful very special gifts. 

FUNFIT SPORTS 

This week we started our lessons with Coach Trevor , we focused on our races that will be in our upcoming Sports Day , we tackled jumping , throwing , running . Overall it was a very energetic and super busy sports lesson ! 

HEART MATTERS 

This week in Heart Matters , Teacher Hela spoke about things and emotions that are in our control and that are not in our control , they all played a very cool game where we had to try and listen and guess who stole the toy bone from under the chair. Each kiddo had a turn and they loved this very fun game. 

YOGA

Yoga was a little different…they played TETRIS! This game engages with several cognitive skills such as memory, matching and pattern recognition. It also promotes problem solving and thinking patterns. The aim of the game is to fit all the pieces in to fill up the board. It was a super fun activity and everyone woked nicely together as a team. Unfortunately we weren’t able to complete the board, but the Crew were amazing and only had one block left over in the end. We will definitely be playing this again in the future to see if we can get all the blocks onto the board.

It has been a fun and very busy 1 and a half weeks back at school ! 

May everyone have a blessed weekend ! 

Next weeks theme : The Farm – Fruits and Vegetables.

Reptiles

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.
