Countries & Cultures


Flag Colours

12 & Recap



Pp – Pride

We had so much fun discussing the different countries and cultures this week. We had a look at other flags and all their different colours. Our week was mainly discussion-based. Every day, we asked a few children for the name of a country… we got some exciting country names, including Benoni a few time!

We made a class poster for our art with all the Hopper’s little handprints. They each got to colour in the handprint beautifully and we discussed with the children that we are all the same even if we come from different cultures and how we can all make a difference in our beautiful country and worldwide. Multi-culturism means “ALL IN ONE!” We love how our poster came out and will also be displayed at the Art Expo. 

We had our famous braai for cooking this week, and I’m sure you all heard about it. They were so excited to braai their wors rolls for lunch, and they went down very well. Nothing beats a delicious boerewors roll.

On Tuesday, for yoga, the children did yoga to a new song, “Scaly Little Snake”. This was so much fun. They did the snake pose, elephant, bear, cat, frog, and happy children poses. Our Hoppers also did a few spinal twist poses and finished off listening to dolphin sounds for quiet time. 

We have also been working on our art pieces for the Art Expo. We are so excited for this event to take place and show off all our work. Please remember to purchase your tickets! 

Thank you to all our parents for making such beautiful hats for our hat parade on Friday. We had so much fun, and all our hoppers were excited to walk and show off their fabulous hats. 

Have a safe and lovely week. 


Have a wonderful long weekend!

The Farm: Farm Animals

The Happy Hoppers loved learning about all the different farm animals and what they eat and drink and where they live on the farm. They also learnt about what mommy, baby and daddy animals are called and what they produce for humans e.g.: wool from sheep.
