My House









Hh – House

It has been a jam-packed week with lots of fun activities and a lot of excitement after our Sports Day. Thank you for all the support, we really do appreciate it. 

This week we discussed houses, how each of our houses are different, and what kinds of rooms are found in our house. We also spoke about gardens and what kind of rooms could be found in the garden, such as a tool shed or garage. 

We practiced our letter of the week “h” and the sound it makes. We learnt that “h” stands for Harry Hatman in our letterland story book. We also looked for objects around the class that start with the letter “h”  

We carried on with our integrated theme art project, last week we coloured in our family members and painted triangles, this week we painted a square with a big paint brush. We painted a big A3 cardboard with some fun painting techniques, our Hoppers sponge painted the sky and used a fork to paint grass, after they were dry the Hoppers pasted our squares and triangles to make the house and then stuck the family members to the picture, we added a door and windows to the house and they even have a house number. These are looking amazing and will finish them with the final additions with next week’s theme “Pets.” 

On Thursday for cooking, we made a lovely, sweet treat of a house. We used a tennis biscuit for the square of the house, straight pretzels for the roof, a piece of KitKat for the door and some smarties for the windows.  

Happy Hoppers Yoga Day! We focused on our lateral muscles whilst singing and stretching along to the “Clap It” song. 

This week’s pose was the forward bend! 

Benefits of forward bending: 

*Improves digestion  

*Stretches and removes tension in the spine and neck 

*Increases blood flow  

 It has been a super busy week with lots of fun activities and excitement in the Happy Hopper classroom. 

Our theme next week is: My Pets 

If you would like to bring your pet to school next week, please send us a private message so that we can arrange a day and a time slot!

Have a safe and lovely 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.
