Caring For Our World – Recycling









Rr- Recycling

Moral conscious theme: Responsibilities: For our moral conscious this week we explained to the Squad the importance of putting away their belongings as well as looking after them. We also explained that they need to take accountability for their actions as well as take class jobs and duties seriously.  

Writing and Phonics: This week Squad worked hard on remembering their sight words and received three new sight words for this week “to”, and “do” and “the”. The children then did a worksheet on the “am” family where they had to rewrite the words until the end of line followed by sentences using the “am” family words. They have really impressed us with their handwriting which is improving every week! Great work!    

Mathematics: The children practiced counting to 20 and back as well as counted in 2’s. They then completed a fun worksheet on ordinal numbers. They had to circle the correct insect, such as circle the “third” butterfly. They understood this concept well, we are so proud!  

Creative Art: We worked together in groups to make beautiful abstract art pieces using paint and recycled materials, we cant wait for you to see these at Art Expo! 

Music and Cooking: On Tuesday for Music, Teacher Katy came and sang concert songs with the Squad, she taught them how to sing in tune and keep the beat. 

Afrikaans: For Afrikaans the Squad practiced counting to 20 in afrikaans as well as body parts and colours in afrikaans. They then completed a comprehension on “Ben se Hond”, we read the lovely story together and then answered the questions. 

FunFit Sport: The Squad played soccer at FunFit sports, they dribbled between the cones, aiming for the target using the inside of their feet and scoring, they had so much fun! 

We are completing assessments over the next week; please could we ask that your child attends school every day.

Cooking: For our cooking class this week the Squad used their creativity and fine motor skills to the max by making their own ships (Transport theme). They started with a base made from half an apple, then added syrup and Rice Krispies to create the ship’s structure. Next, they added a triangular cheese flag on a toothpick and a jelly baby “human” to complete the design. This made a delicious and healthy snack, great work little chefs!
