We love our Oceans and our Hoppers do too.  Over the past two weeks, we learned and discuss many facts and concerns about our oceans.

 Here are some “did you know facts” about our awesome oceans.

– The majority of life on earth is aquatic.

– Less than 5% of the planet’s oceans have been explored.

– The world’s longest mountain chain is under water.

– Plastic is the most common pollutant found in our Oceans.

 It is up to us to protect our oceans and the sea life that occupies our oceans. We are so proud of how much our Hoppers care about our planet and they really enjoyed the art activities we had planned.

What a fun, jam-packed two week we have had with this theme.

We put our fine motor, visual perceptual and creative skills to the test with all the fun activities we did.

The Hoppers loved creating their jelly fish, they decorated a paper plate cut in half with finger painting. The hoppers then practised their fine motor skills threading wool into punched holes to make the legs of the jelly fish and googly eyes to finish him off, they are super cute! Our next art activity we created amazing shark sensory bottles. The children added some glitter, orbees, some seaweed (green material), water and a foam shark to a plastic bottle and shook it all up. Our Hoppers loved this activity and put their fine motor skills to the test by scooping the glitter and putting it into the bottle.

 Assessments for year end have been going well, we are so proud of all out Hoppers!

 At FunFit Sports Coach Dave assessed the kiddos in different activities …  running, jumping, throwing and catching… The Hoppers did an amazing job in each activity. Well done!

 At yoga this week, using the hands and feet cards, we focused on problem solving. This activity stimulates the Prefrontal cortex part of the brain and the Anterior cingulate cortex which manages potential solutions to the challenge. The object is similar to Twister. The highlight of today’s yoga class was that I had a hole in my sock! 🤣🧦

 Our theme next week will be:  Cooking and Food.

 Have a safe and lovely weekend!

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.
