Land, Air and Sea Transport

Land, Air & Sea Transport









Jj – Jet

We started off this week, talking about different kinds of land air, and sea transport. We also had so much fun pretending to be different kinds of transport. We spread our arms and were super-fast jets, we made “Choo-Choo” sounds for a train, and we blew our horns to be a big ship.

 The Hoppers were given a page and, with a little help from the teachers, folded the paper to make paper aerorplanes. The aeroplanes were then coloured in to decorate them. Our Hoppers were so excited to go test their paper planes outside in our Hoppers’ garden.  

 For our art we incorporated our shape, colour and transport theme into one masterpiece! We sponge painted a diamond shape piece of paper navy blue, the children were given all different kinds of shapes to make a car, boat and an aeroplane to stick onto the paper and we then turned the diamond into a kite.

Our letter for the week was “J-j” and our letter land book was all about Jumping Jim. We all jumped around the classroom like jumping Jim saying different “J” words. Please ask your Hoppers to tell you some words that start with the letter “J’? This was so much fun, and our Hoppers really impressed us when asked for “J” words.

 Our Hoppers are doing so well in learning the concert songs, we are super proud of them. We cannot wait for concert day. So exciting!

 It has been such a great week!

Our theme next week is: 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.
