Father’s Day & Sport









Dd – Daddy

IB Principle:  Creative Thinkers – this week we spoke about we can extend our knowledge by pushing the boundaries and asking those difficult questions. 

Writing and Phonics: This week we focused on our “am” family. We wrote these words out using the cat method and the Squad are improving with their abilities to correctly place their letters on the lines and using finger spacing. Well done! 

Mathematics: We coloured in the amount of objects that corresponded with the number. We also recapped counting to 20 and counting backwards. This was our last week of assessments and are pleased with their progress. 

Creative Art: This week we focused on creating wonderful art pieces for Father’s Day. The children decorated their own ties using recycled bits from our Art Studio and they moulded salt dough to create a key holder. We hope you love it just as much as we do.  

FunFit Sports: Coach Trevor completed gross motor assessments with the Squad this week. 

Cooking: Teacher Hayley made cupcakes with the Squad that were decorated with a golf theme. Using oreo’s for sand, icing sugar for the grass and pretzels for the golf pole. Delicious! 

Wishing you all a lovely weekend. 

Love, Teacher Carla & Teacher Hayley
