Cooking & Food




Rectangular Prism / Recap





Cc – Cooking; Ff – Food


This has been a fun-filled week with the Squad completing a cooking every day! The Squad made mini pizzas, fruit kebabs, volcanoes and sailboats. They learned to appreciate the food so much more because they put in the hard work at creating their snack/lunch. During ring-time we discussed healthy vs unhealthy foods and went over our food pyramid.

Writing, Phonics & Maths: We have been conducting our annual end of year assessments this week and in order to prepare the children, we recapped our letters, sounds and sight words. Along with writing out each of our sight words. We also recapped our mathematical concepts such as adding and subtracting using concrete objects. We are so pleased with how far these Squad members have come.

Life Skills: What a wonderful moral to learn at a young age, we focused on our manners and learned that we should always be appreciative for the food that we get because there are others that go without.

Art: We have been working on some top-secret Christmas art pieces which will go home at the end of the year. The Squad have also been finishing up their Books of Me and we cannot wait for you to see them!

FunFit Sports: At FunFit Sports the Squad were assessed and we are pleased with how much they have improved in their gross motor abilities.

It has been a wonderful week!


Have a safe ad lovely weekend.

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!
