Building, Construction & Factories









Cc – Conveyor Belt

We spent the week building, building and building out of all sorts of bricks and blocks. We have quite a variety in the class and art studio. They loved building houses and towers with teacher Thandy and Sizo. We used all different types of blocks from small wooden ones to large plastic Lego blocks. This is a tricky theme, but the Pups really learned so much by observing and playing.

For our art piece this week we all painted a box. This is quite a difficult process for the Pups and a lot of work for them to paint all the sides of the box. The Pups were bending in all sorts of different ways to reach all the sides. Some of them realized they could turn the box around and around to reach the different sides. We used brushes to paint our boxes and at times painted each other! We wrote the address on each child’s building and used each child’s name as the street name. For an example my buildings address was 113 Cecilia Street Rynfield Benoni. We all had so much fun!!

The teachers are very happy with their little Pups and enjoy all our days spent with them.

 Have a wonderful weekend. NB!  Wednesday 13th April is break up day.


We can definitely feel the weather is changing! But even though there is a chill in the air, it is really beautiful to see all the Autumn leaves!

With that being said, please make sure your Pups are taking their vitamins and necessary medication so we can keep those horrible germs as far away as possible. Please also label every piece of clothing as it is very easy to lose jerseys and jackets when the layers come off and when they haven’t been labeled.

 Dates to Diarise:


Haircut Day: TBC

Sports Day: 9 April

Break Up Day: 13 April


Lots of love

We kicked off the fun with some imaginative play, pretending to drive cars and be trains. The Pups absolutely loved it! Their giggles and excitement filled the room as they zoomed around and chugged along.

There was also lots of messy play, which, of course, the Pups had a blast with. One of the most fun activities was decorating a sheep with icing sugar and adding popcorn for its wool. The smiles on the Pups’ faces as they carefully placed each piece of popcorn were absolutely priceless!
