My Emotions & Valentine’s Day


Pink, Red, White







Ll – Love

Writing and Phonics: Phonics this week focused on our next two sight words ‘a’ and “am”. The Squad made their very own “glasses” where they coloured in and cut out the word look. They then used these cool glasses to look for their sight words and circle them. The Squad then drew a picture of what they did on the weekend and coloured it in. Please continue to practice the following sight words:

a, am, look, at, me, in, here

Maths: Our mathematics lesson this week we introduced addition sums up to 10. They completed sums in their workbooks using concrete objects and practiced their number formation up to 10. Well done, Squad!

Life Skills: “Thinkers”- For our IB principle thinkers aids to assist the learners to solve problems, learn from mistakes and be thoughtful of others.

Art: The Squad had so much fun this week making Valentine’s Day gifts for their families. They received a strawberry card and decorated them. They then made juice box cookies holders, these turned out very cute and the squad were so chuffed by the outcome.

Afrikaans: For Afrikaans this week we did a fun shapes and colours worksheet, we called out the name of the colour for each shape in Afrikaans and the squad had to try and remember what the colour is in English and colour in their shapes.

Cooking & Music: This week’s cooking was so much fun; they made their own love heart cookies to put inside their valentines day art. They worked together to whisk the flour butter and castor sugar and off they went in the oven. For music this week we sang some songs as well as introduced tempo (the speed of music).

 It has been a great week.

See you all next week.



We just loved boogying with you!
