Winter, Temperatures, Fire & Ice






20 & Recap



Ww – Winter

This week , the Curious Crew class had so much to chat about in our theme discussion and Morning ring. We spoke about what winter means to us , and how do we know it’s winter . We spoke about the different clothing we wear , the different food we eat , and what we do in our homes to keep warm. We also spoke about what happens to our temperature during winter , and what happens to our environment and surroundings on cold mornings. 

We also focused on our phonic letters , as well as our counting. And we are so proud of how well everyone is doing regarding their counting. 

For art this week ; we made the most beautiful icicle, using silver glitter , and boy this came out beautifully! We also finger painted a fire flame using red , orange and yellow paint. This was by far their most favourite art activity yet. We then used sand and sticks to incorporate a 3D art for the week..

Yoga Day! 

This week we used our senses to guess what was in our mystery bag. 

Each yogi got a chance to feel around in the bag, with their eyes closed, and select 1 item to squeeze, feel, shake, smell. The yogis then had to describe the item using textures, hard or soft, shapes, what it’s made of etc.  

Heart matters 

Learning about our 3 different brains we have in our bodies 1. Head brain. 2. Heart brain 3. Gut brain , and teacher Hela explained that out head brain is where we use our brains to think and process our emotions and how we learn etc. 

We used our fist , to demonstrate our brain , and the different sections of our brains and what they control. 

Teacher Hela then used a little doll house ,and little puppets , she explained that the house demonstrates a house in our brain , with an upstairs and a downstairs , dividing up our different emotions, that we process throughout our day. 

This was a wonderful and creative way to demonstrate on our our brain works together control how we react in situations. 

May we have the most blessed and warm midterm break next week ! May everyone be safe and enjoy their time at home.

Land, Air and Sea Transport

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!
