My Family









Gg – Granny

Dear Hopper Parents

This week was all about families! We discussed our theme: My Family, and who is in our family. We drew pictures of our families, some of the Hoppers who do not have siblings were adamant to draw a brother or sister too!

After our discussion about who is in our family, each Hopper chose a family member template indicating who “lives under their roof”. Once coloured in, the template got added to their family roof, which represents our shape of the week.

We just love chatting about families as we always get to hear about the “hundreds of dogs” or “many cats” that are part of their families! Safe to say, there is never a dull moment during Ring Time discussions, our Hoppers are so entertaining!

 We had a free play day with construction blocks and puppets. Free play activities are just as important as structured activities, as it allows the children to use their imaginations and explore. It also allows the children to work on their social skills such as sharing and communicating their feelings.

Next week’s theme is: My House

Have a safe and lovely weekend folks!






For our number activity we mixed red and blue paint which made purple paint.

We then painted a number 7 and counted out 7 objects to paste onto our number 7. 

Mixing colours is always so much fun and magical, we just love seeing the kids reactions towards the colour change! 


 Dates to Diarise:


Pet Demo: 15 March

Haircut Day: 16 March

Human Rights Day: 21 March (Public Holiday)

Bon Fire Picnic: 25 March




Lots of love

Wild Animals and Birds of Prey

It has been a delightful week learning all about wild animals and birds of prey. The Hoppers really enjoyed this theme so much. We spoke about the big five and all the other animals we can find in the parks. We discussed where they live and what they eat. We also asked the Hoppers which is their favourite animal. We got lots of different answers. The lion seemed to be on the top of the list, well I guess after all he is the king of the jungle.
