Father’s Day & Sport









Dd – Daddy

Wow, what a jam-packed week of fun it has been. Between all the fun intra-murals, bike-a-thon and Father’s Day activities, there was so much fun to be had by all.  

This week our Hoppers were very excited to talk about Dad and what sports they enjoy doing or watching with Dad. For our art, we made awesome “Superhero” spinner cards. Our Hoppers first coloured in the pictures, they then painted paper plates, and then we put our cards together. These came out so cute! 

For our gifts, we made the most adorable key rings for Dad, our Hoppers all got to draw a picture of them with Daddy, and we laminated these to add to the key rings which we made from painted bottle caps and a cute little photo. These came out so special.  

Cooking this week was also all about Dad, and we made the most delicious choc chip cookies…. yummy! 

FunFit sport this week, we got to work on our monkey bars skills with coach Trevor. This was so much, and all our Hoppers did so well! 

The Happy Hoppers could not wait for Thursday to show off their awesome racing skills, and when bike day arrived, it was filled with smiles and cheering.  

To go along with the bike-a-thon, the children made their own certificates and medals. The Happy Hoppers coloured in their racing bicycle and got a “gold coin” for fabulous efforts to munch afterwards. Well done on a fantastic bike-a-thon day Happy Hoppers! 

Happy Father’s Day to all our dads on Sunday, 18th June. We hope you enjoy all your special spoils! 

Have an amazing long weekend, keep warm, chill, and remember to take your vitamins.

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.
