Moral conscious theme: Imagination: we focused this week on tapping into our imagination and role play. It is very important for children to use their sense of adventure and imagination whilst playing. We read some of our old fantasy stories such as Cinderella, Snow White and 101 Dalmatians. 

Writing and Phonics: We have started with assessments and so we are recapping our letter names and sounds. We are also going over our sound button concept, different word families and more importantly our sigh words. The Squad have come such a long way since the beginning of the year, and we are so proud of them. 

Mathematics: For maths this week we recapped our number names 1-10, we also went over rote counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. Our Squad sometimes reverse the numbers (which is age appropriate), however we have been practicing this. Well done! Furthermore, we have been going over our 2D and 3D shape names, as well as how to draw them. 

Creative Art: The Squad this week have been completing some art pieces for art expo. We are very excited for you all to see. In specific we worked on a Reggio Emilia art piece which involved woodwork. They absolutely loved the idea of hammering (supervised of course). 

Music and Cooking: For cooking this week we made a frog out of Marie Biscuits, white chocolate, and marshmallows. This ties last week’s theme along with this week. Princess and the frog. 

FunFit Sports: Coach Trevor worked through the different stations that were used at the inter-house sports day at the Primary school. The Squad did an amazing job.  

 Wishing you all a lovely weekend.

Land, Air and Sea Transport

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!
