My Emotions & Valentine’s Day


Red, Pink, White







Ll Love

Moral conscious theme: Love Tanks – This week we spoke to the Squad about how important it is to use love words and not sandpaper words. We discussed how we are able to FILL our friends’ tanks instead of empty them because when we empty them, we are very sad. We also played a game where the Squad complimented each other. 

Writing and Phonics: We went over our “J, K, L” letters (capital and lower-case) this included the Squad writing the letters with white board markers first and then writing the letters in their books. We encourage you to continue to practice writing using this method at home. 

Mathematics: We went over our 3D shapes song on Thursday and then went through each of the shapes in detail. The squad had a worksheet to complete by matching the pictures and then we practiced counting in 10s. Keep it up! 

Creative Art: This was a fun-filled week with both Valentines Day art and Emotions art. The children created their very own emotions CD by drawing and decorating with glitter. They were very creative with this and had so much fun! For Valentines Day – they created their own card “I love you to pieces” – very sweet! 

FunFit Sports: Coach Trevor and the Squad practiced for our annual Sports Day. We are getting very excited for this, and we cannot wait to show you what the Squad can do! 

Music: We have been working on our melody and keeping with the beat (a four beat). We are very proud of how courageous the Squad are to stand up and sing impromptu songs. 

Cooking: This week we created our very own pink cookies which were sent home. They were drizzled with chocolate and were scrumptious! Thank you, Squad! 

It has been a great week!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Creative Art: For art this week we completed a “what will I be when I grow up?” worksheet which will be kept for the Book of Me. We also made chef hats so that the Squad has a hat for cooking classes. We also had a free ‘messy’ play where they were allowed to use different equipment and art forms in order to express themselves.

Science and Experiments

 For our cooking class this week, the Squad did an interesting experiment where we made our own Crunchy Rock Candy, using ice-cream sticks, boiling water, food colouring and sugar. The Squad were fascinated by how the crystals were formed, once the water temperature decreased more molecules joined the sugar crystals.

For art this week we completed some lovely Easter pieces which will be taken home. They made a pop-up bunny from a cup and straws (created independently but with some guidance). They also made an Easter card which they wrote themselves and also stuck some pasta into patterns and painted it. Remember – some bunny loves you!
