Travel & Holidays









Hh – Hot

Last week was a quieter week. With lots of absentees and children feeling a little under the weather, we took it easy and just followed the Pups’ lead. In the Playful Pup class, you have to be able to go with the flow and listen to what the children are needing, and sometimes that is many more cuddles and individual attention, lots of free play and giving them the chance to talk to me about what they are feeling. They are all starting to talk beautifully and their vocabulary has grown tremendously. These Pups are now able to talk about how they are feeling and I’m so proud of them as I really try to encourage that here in my classroom.

During ring time we chatted all about holidays and travelling and what they get up to when on holiday. They seemed to get very excited when I mentioned the word holiday! Somehow our conversations lead to our next theme – Christmas. The excitement of Christmas coming is palpable. Such a magical time for them!

 We then had Fun Fit sports with Coach Brad who challenged our balance and jumping skills. We also had yoga and even finished with a dance party! The Pups had so much fun.


We went on holiday!

We went on a safari (nature walk) and tried to spot all the birds and animals we could see … we even used our binoculars which we made.

We took a trip to the beach front (sand pit) to collect and look for sea shells.

There are two things children should get from there parents:




Please remember:

Christmas boxes for your child’s art

Flash sticks for reports

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.
