The Farm: Fruit & Vegetables








Vv – Vegetables

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

This week our kiddies made a progressive art piece of a delicious pot of soup. The hoppers worked on their cutting skills, cutting out pictures of different vegetables in magazines. We then coloured in a pot and then they stuck on their vegetable pictures.

On Friday the children put their cooking skills to the test when they helped Chef Thembi in the kitchen to make yummy seven-veggie sauce for lunch.

It has been a very busy week with assessments, building puzzles and counting as well as concert practice and sports days practice!

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

Our theme next week is: The Farm: Animals

Have a safe and lovely weekend!

See you at Sports Day tomorrow!

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.
