Autumn, Birds, Migration & Easter




Cross & Oval





Oo – Oval

What an exciting and fun short week we’ve had. During ring time we enjoyed discussing weekend news, our theme of the week as well as the weather and days of the week.

Writing and Phonics: The Squad worked hard on remembering their sight words from last week and received two new sight words for this week “dad” and “and”. We introduced sound buttons this week, the Squad grasped this concept well. They then wrote their first full sentences this week using their sight words, we are exceptionally proud of them, keep it up!  

Mathematics: The Squad did a simple worksheet on time where they had to draw the hands on the clock and explained minutes and hours, this is a new and difficult concept to grasp, and they did super well!

Creative Art: The Squad made their own pop bunnies using a cup, straws and coloured in ears, paws, and heads. These came out cute. They then made easter trees by making their own patterns on eggs for each family member and stuck them down on the tree.

Music and Cooking: On Tuesday for cooking the Squad made easter baskets by moulding together rice crispies, chocolate and marshmallows. They then placed speckled eggs in their baskets, hmmm so delicious!

For Music we introduced a Treble Clef and explained it’s a symbol that you use when writing music. They each coloured in a picture of a Treble Clef.

Have a wonderful April Holiday. We cant wait to see our Squad again in Term 2!


Wishing All Our Christian Families And Friends A Happy And Blessed Easter ...
