The Farm – Fruit and Vegetables

May 13, 2022


Fruit & Veggies









V v – Vegetables

Dear Hopper Parents

This week we learnt about fruits and vegetables on the farm. What a great theme in encouraging our little ones to eat healthily, especially with winter around the corner! We started this week off with a theme discussion about fruits and vegetables; we spoke about our favourite fruits and vegetables as well as the difference between them.

This week our kiddies made a progressive art piece of a Fruit and Vegetable Farm. First they sponge painted a beautiful blue sky with clouds and then glued on some soil, which they had collected on their nature walk! For their fruit and veggies, they used their handprints and fingers to paint such unique fruit and veg shapes!

in Cooking Class with Chef Nombuso, the children put their cooking and artistic skills to the test when they made a delicious fruit and veggie caterpillar, using strawberries for the head, cucumber slices for the body, carrot sticks for the legs and green beans for the grass!

It has been a very busy week with assessments, building puzzles, counting and reassessing.

Remember to dose up your little ones with extra vitamins, it is getting a lot colder out there!

Our theme next week is: The Farm: Animals

Have a safe and lovely weekend!

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.
