Ll – Letter

We 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! 

For our art this week the Hoppers coloured in a snake and practiced their cutting skills and cut their snake into a spiral. So proud of our Hoppers they did a great job! This was a fun fine motor skills activity and the children were very happy with their 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 “Charlotte” was a hit as well as the snakes and the very fluffy cute Guinea pig. 

On Monday for FunFit sport, Coach Trevor shouted out a colour, the Hoppers had to run to the buckets of balls and collect as many of that colour they could. This was so much for how Hoppers. 

On Tuesday for yoga, after doing their warm ups and stretches, they played broken telephone. The benefits of this game are: Improved communication and listening skills by encouraging kids to listen and focus to the words being said and to correctly relay the information to their friend. We had some very funny messages being passed along. One message in particular ” happy” came out as ” piano” 

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, so happy to hear our Hoppers are practicing at home. Keep it up!






See you all on Monday!

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.
