Wow the weeks are just flying by so quickly now. This week we learnt all about Frogs and Ponds, Rivers and Dams. It was a very interesting topic for all but our boys seemed to enjoy this theme more than our girls. We looked at many different pictures of frogs and ponds.  

We tried to explain that frogs are amphibians which means they are able to live on land and in the water. They have big eyes; webbed feet and their skin is smooth and moist. Most of them live in water but other species live in trees or burrow into the ground. We made a make shift little pond where we could show the Pups some tadpoles and explain to them that tadpoles are baby frogs. The Pups definitely learn and understand better when they can see and touch objects that we are leaning about. One thing is for sure our clever Pups definitely know what a frog is! 

 The Pups had so much fun this week jumping/leaping around all over the classroom. These little people are so cute and I have a good giggle most days at the funny things they do. The best part of our week was that we got to go next door to see a real pond which was so cool.  

We did some finger painting and we made some cool green jelly and put some jelly tots in the jelly to represent some frog eggs in their own mini pond.  

It was a great sunshine filled week with lots of dancing, singing and learning.  

Please may I ask you to send hats for the Pups as we are having some very hot weather at the moment.  

Have a super weekend and see you Monday! 

Next week’s theme is:  Fantasy

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!
