What an exciting week we had!

 We started off the week by making our own wallets and purses for our shopping day. The children drew pictures on a coloured piece of paper, we then folded the paper in a wallet or purse. We just love our these came out!

 Wednesday was our BIG day out, we had so much fun the Bird and Monkey park. We were so excited to see all the animals, their favourite animal to see was the tiger. We also got to feed the bunnies and Guinee pigs, the Hoppers all had a giggle watching Teacher Kate-Lynn trying to catch a Guinee pig, luckily I was able to catch one for them to love! Hahaha!

 This is one of our Hoppers’ favourite themes. They could not wait for Thursday to go “shopping”.  This was a great opportunity to show our children the value of money. We had a very busy day on and they thoroughly enjoyed their shopping. When there are so many cool things to “buy”, it can become difficult for a young child to choose. Our Hoppers were told that their “eco money” could only buy 5 items. They therefore had to choose carefully and had to compromise on other items that they may have also wanted. The Hoppers had a successful shopping experience.

 This week we did a lot of shop role-play to get ourselves ready for our shopping experience and Curious Crew’s Market day on Friday. We learned about different shop names and what we can buy from them, groceries, furniture and toys. A shop where you can just buy meat and poultry from is called a butchery and the person behind the counter is called a Butcher.

 For Yoga this week we did a yoga story called “Going on a dragon hunt”. It works as a listening, sequencing and memory game. We listened to the instructions then demonstrated all the various poses, actions and breathing in the story. At the end I asked the kids questions to see what they remembered. Our poses included: tree, boat, bridge, cow, frog, mouse and lion.

 It has been a great week.

Our theme for the next week will be: Travels and Holidays.

 Have a safe and lovely weekend.
