12 & Recap



Pp – Pride

Moral conscious theme: Respect different cultures –  

We explained to the Squad that we need to treat everyone equally no matter how they look such as clothing, hairstyles, skin colour and other appearances, or even if they do things differently. Do not make jokes about other cultures. 

Writing and Phonics: This week the Squad worked hard on remembering our sight words as well as wrote out a few of their sight words on their white boards. The squad then did a worksheet on the “eg” family, they had to match the correct words with the pictures followed by writing out sentences with the “eg” family words – their handwriting is drastically improving and we are such proud teachers! 

Mathematics: The Squad did a worksheet on “Tallying” followed by a graph where they had to count the number of sea animals and colour their graphs accordingly, this is a difficult concept to learn however they impressed us with how determined they were to get it right, good job! 

Creative Art: The Squad has been working hard on their art expo pieces, they are very excited for you to see all their artwork as they keep asking to take them home, teehee – so cute!  

Have a wonderful long 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!
