Ff – Farm

We have had a jam-packed week completing assessments. Please note that there will not be many art pieces going home as the assessments have taken up a lot of our time this week.

 We started this week off with a continuation of the farm. We spoke about farm animals and the type of animals we find on a farm.

 As we are learning about Farm Animals this week, we decided to teach the children about the life cycle of a chicken! We discussed this concept and watched a video. For our art piece we created the life cycle of a chicken, this was a sequenced art piece which promoted critical thinking, problem solving and fine motor skills. Our Hoppers created such amazing work that we will be keeping them for Art Expo!

 For cooking on Wednesday, the children made “pigs in a blanket”, these were scrumptious!

 On Friday, Tallyn from Busy Bugs, brought two little lambs for everyone to see. He showed us how he feeds them milk with a baby bottle. Our kiddies absolutely loved this experience!

 Please remember to dose up your little ones with extra vitamins, it is getting a lot colder and there are lots of germs going around.

 Our theme next week is: Wild Animals and Birds of Prey

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.
