Building, Construction & Factories









Cc – Conveyor Belt

We started off this theme with creating our own tool belts. During Ring Time we had a discussion about the different kinds of tools and their uses, then the kiddies coloured in a hammer, a saw and a wrench. Next, they put their fine motor skills to work, by tearing up silver gift paper, to add to their tools to give them a ‘metal look’. Before adding everything together, they painted their belts in their chosen colour!

We also had tons of fun with a numeracy construction activity. Our Hoppers wore safety hard hats while they hammered 10 golf pegs into egg cartons. They had to count each peg while hammering to make sure that they had 10. This activity gave our kiddies an opportunity to count objects one by one to form the connection between the value of a number and objects.

 It has been a great week filled with tons of practical activities and games!

Our theme next week is: Science and Experiments

Have a safe and lovely weekend!

In The Making ...

This theme allows for so much creativity and imagination! It was wonderful to see all the creations from our little engineers and architects in the making. The Hoppers just loved indulging in our construction stations that had been set up throughout the week! They constructed some pretty impressive structures and buildings!
