Pp – Pride

What a lovey week we had with our Pups. We spoke all about different cultures. This is a difficult theme for our little Pups to understand. We discussed that culture includes material goods, the things the people use and produce. Culture is also the belief and values of the people and the ways they think about and understand the world and their own lives. Different countries have different cultures. We told the Pups that different countries speak different languages and eat different foods. When told them we live in South Africa. We read some lovely stories about different countries and then I think they got a better understanding of what we trying to explain to them.     

We also had so much fun playing games and playing with water and bubbles. We have also been making our amazing photo frames and cannot wait to show off your children’s AMAZING school photos to you!  

We did a lot of painting for the Art Expo that is coming up and our Pups can’t wait to show off their hard work. There was also so much excitement for Friday’s Hat Parade which was totally amazing. We saw so much creativity and hard work that was put into this event. This was truly such an amazing day and so much fun and laughter had by all. To all the parents, thank you so much for all your hard work, love and support.

A highlight of the week was the reptile show on Wednesday. The Pups couldn’t believe what they saw! Some of them were very brave and touched the reptiles being shown, while others kept their distance but were still very curious. Seeing their big eyes light up as the snakes and spiders came close was definitely something special.
