We have had an action-packed week! We’re sure the Hoppers must be exhausted from all the fun that was had.

 We started off the week revising our letter of the week. We sang and danced to our jolly phonics letters and read our letter land book, Lucy Lamp Light. After our story, we went around the class and each Hopper got to tell us a word starting with the letter “L’’. We got some interesting words like Liquorice, Leg, Lego, Lips, and Listen. Well done, Hoppers!

 We did a very cool progressive art piece where created amazing, beaded snakes. This was a fun fine motor skills activity where the children got to thread beads and pieces of straws onto twisted pieces of wire. We then added a head and we had beautiful, beaded snakes.

 The highlight of the week was the reptile show. Julian from Wild Ones showed us all of his amazing and wonderful animals. The huge tarantula “Spinderella” was a hit as well as the snakes and the cute little Chinchilla.

 Concert practice has been in full swing this week; our Hoppers are doing so well. We are so proud of them and cannot wait for the big day! I’m sure most of you already know all our songs, we are so happy to hear our Hoppers are practicing at home. Keep it up!  

Have a safe and lovely weekend!

The Farm: Farm Animals

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.
