Health & Hygiene










This week our theme was all about Health and Hygiene.

We spoke about eating healthy food and what it means to be healthy. We took a look at a few healthy veggies and fruit that we found in the kitchen. We had fun washing our hands and brushing our hair.

For our art this week we made a beautiful picture of a healthy happy tooth and a toothbrush and toothpaste in a cup which is 2D. Please see our blog photos. We did some free painting which was so much fun. The pictures are all so different and beautiful – just how we love our art to be! Some children love to mix colours, others keep the colours very separate. Some prefer only 2 or 3 colours while others wanted all of them! Amazing to see their creative processes.

We learnt about the concept of an apology and I am happy to see that all of our children say sorry with no problem if they need to. This is wonderful and makes classroom life a lot more pleasant and happy!

Our last experiment was glitter germs! We used this experiment to show the children that even though you can see the glitter, there are lots of germs on hands and skin that you can’t see! They have been told to wash their hands until they can’t see any more glitter. We had a lovely sensory activity popping bubble wrap taped to floor the Pups loved walking and running over the bubble wrap. The Pups went to yoga with teacher Nicole and they listened to a story by Cosmic kids about a visit to old MacDonalds farm and after we practiced some really cool animal poses. This activity was really great for using their imaginations. We also went to FinFit sports with coach Dave and did some track running and some ball rolling. These little Pups are just so adorable. So the Pups had a jam packed busy week and deserve a lovely relaxing weekend.

I have loved spending time with your little busy bodies.  Enjoy looking at all the photos from the week!

Another reminder to PLEASE label as much as you possibly can.

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.
