Father’s Day & Sport









Dd – Daddy

Another week that has just flown by so quickly. The old saying is true “time flies when you having fun!” 

We had so much fun discussing how special our dads are and what role they play in our families. We also discussed that some families don’t have daddies and that is fine cause moms are also there to love and help us. We love all our families big and small. We spoke about sports that some daddies like to watch or take part in like soccer, rugby, swimming, gym etc. it was great to hear these little Hoppers tell us how they feel about their dads. 

We made a lovely Father’s Day card that said “scored the best dad with a soccer ball on the front with each Hoppers special footprint on the ball. This looks so awesome. We hope you love your special card. We also made some popcorn with broken Oreo’s with melted whit chocolate over them. On the packet it said pass the snacks to match our card we made.  

Yoga this week with teacher Nicole we the dancing bear warm up song. Our stretches were tree, boat, and chair poses. Working on our hand-eye co-ordination. we played a game called Topple, which had the kids practising their pincer grip by placing little counters on top of each other. The Hoppers did super well. 

We had a lovely gross motor workout where the Hoppers had to catch a tennis ball in a cone then walk over small blocks not to touch the grass {lava} then over a balancing board and then the last stage climb into a sack and jump to the edge of the grass in the quad and back. Kids just love being so busy. 

Our concert practise is way under way, and we are looking forward to the big day. 

Have a wonderful weekend.

Caring For Our World: Recycling

Caring For Our World: Recycling

This week was all about recycling. This is a huge favourite for our Ecokids as this is what we are all about. Looking after our world is so important. We spoke about what it means to recycle. This isn’t an easy concept for our Hoppers to understand but we are sure they got the just of it by the end of the week. We sang lots of recycling songs and they definitely know the words REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE.
